Montepulciano is nestled between the Val D'Orcia and Val di Chiana. Built along the narrow top of a limestone hill, this beautiful medieval village seems to be the natural continuation of the landscape on which it was built. Coming from the striking but more touristy city of Pienza, the landscape that you encounter just before reaching the village is the perfect reflection of classical Tuscany. Immediately below town's castle walls and fortifications, you can admire the church of the Madonna di San Biagio. Piazza Grande, situated on the highest point of the town, is dominated by the great tower and the Gothic facade of the Palazzo Comunale. Opposite the town hall, you can admire the Cathedral which dates back to the late sixteenth century. Despite its undeniable beauty, Montepulciano is well-known internationally for its Vino Nobile, one of the most popular Tuscan wines in the world.
