About
Elegant and sophisticated, Montepulciano is situated on the top of a hill from which you can enjoy a breathtaking panorama of Val d'Orcia. Sumptuous buildings in Renaissance style are surrounded by a medieval architecture creating a fascinating and unique urban environment. The heart of the city is Piazza Grande, where stands the Duomo and the Palazzo Pubblico designed by the famous Florentine architect Michelozzo. Montepulciano is a symbol of high quality wine: in fact, Nobile di Montepulciano is one of the most famous wines in Italy and abroad. The tour continues towards the beautiful small town of Pienza, the ambition of Pope Pius II, who wanted to transform his native village, into an utopian city, which should became a symbol of the Italian Renaissance. Pienza is also well known for the local production of Pecorino cheese. Along the way, you will have a stop to taste the local wine in one of the many wineries in the territory of the incomparable Val D’Orcia (on request).
