Located a stone’s throw from our bed and breakfast, the beautiful town of Montepulciano is an elegant Renaissance village that stands on a hill between Val d’Orcia and Valdichiana.
Visiting Montepulciano will make you fall in love in an exciting journey through history, tradition and wine.
The heart of the city is located in Piazza Grande, framed by the splendid Renaissance palaces and the Duomo. Piazza Grande was chosen as a film set by internationally renowned directors and in the summer it becomes the main stage for the most important events such as the International Art Site, the Poliziano Bruscello, Calici di Stelle and the Braccio delle Botti.
We recommend a walk along the course between artisan shops and historic cellars dug into the rock, noble palaces and churches.
Also worth visiting is the ancient fortress which today houses the headquarters of the Consorzio del Vino Nobile and the suggestive wine shop. At the foot of the town, outside the walls, you will be delighted by the beauty of the Temple of San Biagio, a unique and magical place.
Obviously we are in the land of Vino Nobile, an excellent wine that you can taste in the wine bars and restaurants of the town but also in the excellent cellars scattered among the vineyards around the village.
