Montalcino Travel Guide: 93 reviews and 337 photos

Montalcino is a beautiful Tuscan hill town, which sits looking over the Orcia valley. It is famous for its wine - Brunello di Montalcino, which is one of the best (and most expensive) wines produced in Italy.

We stayed in Montalcino for two nights, tasted our fair share of the local drop and explored the surrounding area. Our hotel room had views across the valley, in fact the early morning view from our window was one of the most stunning I have seen in Italy.

Montalcino really is a lovely town - the landscape around it is gorgeous, and there is that very drinkable wine to consider!

** Have now visited Montalcino three times - in Sep 2006, Sep 2007 & Jun 2010**

    We are renting an apartment for 2 weeks on a vineyard outside of Montalcino. I loved your pages and can't wait for the wine and food!

    Love all your Tuscan pages! The drawback is I can't decide where to stay, everything looks so beautiful :S But this little hotel in Montalcino seems to be pretty "tuscan" : ) and the morning views are stunning.. Thanks for the great pages! Rita

    What a marvellous page, tips and photos! Loved the views over the morning mists and the wines looked equally as exciting.
