Montepulciano is the ‘jewel’ of 1500s Tuscany located between Val di Chiana and Val d’Orcia. It is characterised by three centuries of art history with its architecture ranging from the 1400s to the 1600s. Moreover, it safeguards the sculptures and the paintings of the great artists of the past in the Museum Crociani Pinacoteca.
The city offers a lot to young and grown-up tourists. It not only combines ‘art’ in the traditional sense of the word, but also the art of producing one of the best wines in Tuscany – the first Italian red wine- Vino Nobile of Montepulciano.
It is a place that suits everyone, for those who want to spend a romantic honeymoon, inquisitive visitors, gourmets as well as families.
We would like to suggest some tours that you can take part in if you are interested in exploring this beautiful city and its wonders.
On the trail of the White Giant… You will have the opportunity to visit an old nineteenth-century farm, where they breed Chianina calves. ‘Chianina IGP’ meat will be served for lunch, and this type of meat is the best for the preparation of the very popular Florentine steak, steak tartare, hamburgers, and roast beef.
