What's Montepulciano Like?

Montepulciano's setting, atop a long ridge, has defined its character. It's a compact town of sloping streets and atmospheric squares. Its architecture was influenced by a 16th century alliance with Florence and a period of building elegant Renaissance palaces. The starting point for sightseers is the highest point of the town, the Piazza Grande, which features the 14th-century Gothic Palazzo Comunale and the relatively unadorned cathedral with fine Renaissance statues decorating the interior. The Palazzo Contucci on the main square has an extensive cellar devoted to the local wines, with tastings. The Corso is the main avenue of Montepulciano, with enticing paths and alleys branching off behind the line of imposing palaces. Outside the walls, blending into the tranquil landscape, the pilgrim church of San Biagio is one of the most beautiful Renaissance buildings in Italy, constructed from golden travertine stone with an ornate interior. Montepulciano hotels offer a relaxing base for exploring the Tuscan hills.
