Montepulciano Travel Guide: 90 reviews and 264 photos

Montepulciano is an amiable hill town perched atop a narrow limestone ridge in central Tuscany. Its main street climbs steeply up to Piazza Grande, and along the way gourmet food & wine shops tempt you.

While you are there, take the time to sample some local cuisine in one of the excellent restaurants, and more importantly, try some of the town's most famous product - Vino Nobile di Montepulciano - a flavoursome red wine, which is produced here.

You won't be disappointed by the views from the town walls either!

    I'm looking forward to tasting some Pecorino and Brunello during my summer visit to Montepulciano. In the meantime I enjoyed reading your pages.

    pages on M & M are so enjoyeable - great pictures and commentary. We have never made these 2 villages -- if I ever get back. Loved the Chiesa del Gesu interior.

    I've drank lots of the lovely Montepulciano wine but never made it to the town. Looks like a very nice place.

    Awesome page, but you forgot the "Warning and danger" tip: Don't take a walk on the city walls if you have sampled too many different wines. :o)

    Ah, I remember it well ! When we were there a couple came out of the church and had their wedding photos taken by the well in Piazza Grande.
