Rich in history, art and culture, it is a jewel nestled in the Tuscan countryside. The historical and artistic heritage, combined with the extraordinary food and wine traditions and the lively cultural and social network make Montepulciano the ideal synthesis of the cultural heritage of Tuscany.
The town is surrounded by ancient medicean walls which still protect it symbolically: your visit to the old town can begin accessing one of the seven ancient town gates.
Sunny, with a distinctive Renaissance style, it is the most important point of reference for the town, as well as the core of civil and religious life, with important representative buildings and noble, stately palaces. Alongside the Cathedral and Town hall, around the Square we find historical buildings such as Palazzo Del Monte-Contucci, a XVI century building by Antonio da Sangallo il Vecchio, Palazzo Nobili-Tarugi, with its ample portico and unique decorated facade and the Palazzo del Capitano del popolo, in front of which is the well of the Griffin and Lions.
Going along the streets and alleys of Montepulciano, look up and enter directly in the history of Renaissance. Palazzo Avignonesi, Palazzo Bucelli, Palazzo Benincasa and many others that we leave you the task to discover and visit. Numerous religious buildings, which you will undoubtedly want to visit, preserve important works of art.
