The Exquisite Sights (and Tastes) of Montepulciano

Perched high on a hill overlooking the stunning Tuscan landscape that surrounds it, the town of Montepulciano has become popular (and rightly so!) for its food and wine, along with the charms of its medieval and Renaissance architecture. Learn all about Pulcinella, the clown-like character who surprisingly decorates the top of one of the town’s towers, and discover the delights of the Piazza Grande. There, you can enjoy the renowned Vino Nobile di Montepulciano in the wine cellars of a noble family—or even head off the beaten path and sip a glass among the depths of Tuscany’s ancient Etruscan history.
