Palazzo Contucci is an exclusive historical residence overlooking Piazza Grande in Montepulciano, one of the most enchanting and appreciated Renaissance squares, just in the heart of Tuscany.
The front of the building, its courtyard and its rooms are an example of the pure style of Tuscan Renaissance in the particular manner of Antonio Sangallo the Elder; the “Salone delle Feste”, on the other hand, has been painted by Andrea Pozzo, it is a clear example of the Baroque and its wonders. Palazzo Contucci gives you the opportunity to go through four centuries of history among the Renaissance architecture, the old style furniture, the frescoes and the old wine cellars extending underground inside the medieval town walls.
Palazzo Contucci is strategically located near Siena and Pienza, 120 km far from Florence and 180 km far from Rome. The place is unique in Italy for cultural and naturalistic itineraries and for gastronomic and wine tours.
