Day 1

  • Become a true adventurer in the city of Orvieto
  • Soak in the beautiful city of Siena as you explore like a local

We leave the bustling madness that is Rome and head to Orvieto, a city known for its unfathomably beautiful duomo, the limestone rock its perched on, and the cave system that makes up its roots. It’s the perfect place to explore and feel like a true adventurer.  

Now it’s time for something a little bit more fast-paced as we arrive in the city of Siena. Your free time here will be packed. Perhaps you’ll visit the Piazza del Campo? Or maybe the duomo has been on your bucket list for years. Whatever you decide, you’ll love this distinguished city.  

Our day ends in Florence, your overnight stay for the trip. We have to say… Florence is our kind of destination.

Day 2

  • Enjoy an included guided tour of Florence
  • Today is your free day in Florence, so the adventure is up to you

Just to prove how much we adore Florence; we’re giving you the whole day to explore. The morning starts with a guided walking tour of Florence, to help you get oriented for the day ahead. Then the rest is up to you. 

Florence is a masterpiece, the capital of Italy’s Tuscany region, filled with Renaissance art and architecture. Brimming with life and excitement. There’s far too much to choose from. So, what’s on your list?  

Maybe you’ve always wanted to gorge yourself on a Florentine Steak. Stroll across Ponte Vecchio and get an iconic shot of it too. Stroll around the Piazza della Signoria with your camera… finding local markets for an afternoon treat. Climb to the top of Giotto’s Campanile for an orange-topped view of the city. And as the sun sets on your excellent day, you’ll pull into yet another restaurant for yet another fantastic Italian meal.


Included Activities

  • Guided walking tour of Florence (2 hrs)


Pitti Palace Al Ponte Vecchio (or similar), Florence

Day 3

  • Impressive, elegant, and historic... we know you'll love Pienza
  • Indulge in a tour and tasting at Solaria Winery
  • Step back in time in the tiny hamlet of Bagno Vignoni

First up today is a real beauty. An architectural beauty, that is. Pienza is celebrated for its exquisite Renaissance architecture, its UNESCO World Heritage city centre, buildings both impressive and elegant will frame you as you explore. Not to mention the stunning Tuscan countryside views you’ll be treated to… while you munch on Pienza’s renowned Pecorino cheese. Just saying.  

No trip to Tuscany is complete without a visit to a winery, so we stop in at Solaria Winery for a tour followed by a tasting. Need we say more? Bucket list point achieved.  

As we make our way back to Rome, we’ll aim for a quick photo stop in at the tiny Italian hamlet of Bagno Vignoni. This photo-worthy Tuscan village is renowned for its unique and ancient thermal baths. It really is an idyllic end to your adventure. 


Included Activities

  • Solaria winery visit + wine tasting



Where does this tour stay overnight?

You stay two nights in Florence. For examples of the accommodation, please see the tour itinerary.


How does the accommodation work?

A good night’s sleep is often needed for a good day of travel.

So we’ve hand-picked three-star to four-star hotels in remote coastal villages, bustling towns, and mountain valleys.

Your accommodation is included in the tour price; and when you book your trip, you can choose whether you want a double room, a twin room, or a single room.


Are there any extra accommodation costs?

The price you see is for all your tour accommodation and for the tour itself. It also includes a tourist tax. This figure is based on shared accommodation. When you're booking your tour and select a single room, an additional single room supplement will be added to the price.



Do I need a visa to take this tour?

You may need a Schengen Visa to travel throughout Europe. Check the official tourism website of the country you’re visiting for up-to-date and reliable information. Travel between countries is easy because there are no passport checks at the borders.


Are the tours suitable for people with mobility issues?

Most people can comfortably enjoy our tours, but it's worth bearing in mind that we often include optional short walks in scenic locations. Please also be aware that many of the old European towns are built on steep hills with cobbled lanes, and you may have to carry your own luggage at times.

So that we can ensure you're comfortable travelling with us, please let us know about any special requirements or needs at the time of booking. If you have any more questions, simply email .


Do you offer hotel pickups in the departure cities?

Europe's historic city centres are full of narrow streets and winding roads. So, to speed up your departure and avoid contributing to congestion issues, we start our trip from hotels located conveniently on the edge of cities. We choose hotels with good public transport connections to the city centre, so you can enjoy your evening explorations.

To make your tour more convenient, you can add an optional pre and post-departure accommodation in the hotel we use as a pick up or a drop off point.


When should I get to the departure point?

Arrive at the hotel lobby 15 minutes before your departure time. Unfortunately, we’re unable to wait for you if you’re late due to vehicle restrictions. But depending on your situation, we may be able to help you catch up with your tour.


What are your cancellation policies?

We have a cancellation period of 42 days for our Europe tours. If you cancel your trip before this period, we give you a full refund minus a 10% admin charge. If you cancel inside this time frame, you’re liable for the cost of the tour package.

We understand how disappointing it is when you have to cancel a trip with us, so please contact our friendly team who will try their best to resell your ticket and refund you.

What is a guaranteed departure?

It's simple: you book, you go. This means we'll never cancel your tour because of a minimum numbers policy.


Can routes change?

Your friendly driver and guide are passionate about the places they visit and know all the local gossip. This means your tour itinerary can change a little due to festivities, attraction opening hour changes, and spontaneous photo opportunities.


Can I pre-book a specific seat?

Due to logistical reasons, we're unable to let you pre-book a seat on the bus. But our comfortable mini-coaches offer a good view.


Are there toilets on the bus?

We like to keep our coaches small, nimble, and odour free. This means we have no on-board toilet facilities, but you frequently stop in local towns and villages for comfort breaks.


Do you take children on your tours?

We're unable to permit children under 16 years old on our Europe tours due to the nature of the activities that are included.


How much time do I get off the bus?

We want you to enjoy your trip to Europe. And we believe the best way to do this is to get you off the mini-coach and out exploring. So, we give you plenty of stops to take photos, go walking, and explore ancient ruins.


What are 'included activities' and 'optional activities'?

We've arranged experiences for you on your tour. The 'included activities' are already booked and paid for as part of your trip, whereas you can purchase 'optional activities' while on your tour. You also have free time in many destinations to pick and choose which attractions you visit.


Do we need to bring our own lunch?

You don't need to pack or bring along food on the mini-coach. We stop in small European towns, villages, and rural eateries where you can choose whatever meal pleases both your taste buds and your budget.


What should I do if I have too much luggage?

It’s more enjoyable to travel with light luggage. You can take less by cleaning clothes along the way. Most hotels provide affordable laundry service.

But if you're travelling with more than 20kg, don't worry! There are left luggage facilities close to the majority of our departure points, and courier companies who could ship your excess luggage on to your chosen destination. Our team are happy to help if you need any suggestions or recommendations.


Should I tip the driver and the guide?

Let's be honest, our drivers and guides would never refuse a cheeky bonus. But it's up to you, and the amount is entirely at your discretion.


What about travel insurance?

We highly recommend you take out travel insurance, so you can enjoy a stress-free journey.


What is ABTOT?

You're protected by ABTOT when you book a tour with us. This means you can claim back anything you've paid us if we run into any issues. Read our terms and conditions for more information.

Our packages are covered by the Package Travel Regulations. For full details of your key rights please click here.
