Montalcino and Montepulciano Private Wine Tour
You can’t visit Tuscany without tasting Italian wines. Our private tour will let you enjoy the beauties and the better tastes of Italy. Picturesque Moltalcino’s historic center has narrow cobblestone streets with dozens of wineries and artisans’ shops selling local products. Of course here wine is a must. We will also have the opportunity to visit the Duomo (cathedral), dedicated to San Salvatore, a 14th Century church renewed in the 19th-century with a Neoclassical façade. After that, we will see the Piazza della Principessa Margherita, where stands the Palazzo dei Priori or Palazzo Comunale, now town hall, that incorporates a tall medieval tower. Montalcino is divided, like most medieval Tuscan cities, into quarters called “contrade”: Borghetto, Travaglio, Pianello and Ruga. Twice a year they organize an archery contest under the walls of the Fortress, conducted in Medieval dresses, with lords and ladies of each contrada who accompany the proceedings. It seems to make a jump back in history. The town of Montepulciano is another nice example of a medieval village on the top of Siena hills, also known for the wine: Nobile of Montepulciano. We will visit the ancient walls that in the past maintained safe the inhabitants from the attack of the soldiers coming from Florence, and the historical center develops through narrow streets. The most beautiful photos you can see on google images from Tuscany are from this area, so it will be easy to capture some very nice photos. All around shops, restaurants, cafè, wineries will lead you to the top of the village, where you can enjoy beautiful squares, churches and amazing panoramic views. Also you can taste a lot of different wines from the wineries in the area.
