Siena - Tuscany

Montepulciano is built along a narrow ridge of limestone, 605 meters over the sea level. The town is surrounding by big and old walls and forts designed by Antonio da Sangallo il Vecchio during the XVI century by order of Cosimo I. Montepulciano is very famous for the majesty of his Renaissance palaces, for the elegant beauty of his churches and for the “Nobile” wine, one of the most valued wine in the world. The historical centre is built along a way that climbs up to the hill reaching the main square, Piazza Grande, that is in the top of the fascinating town.
