Favorite thing: Montepulciano is a walled hill town, with the main entry gate, being the medieval Porta al Prato, at its northern end. Once inside the walls, it is virtually vehicle free. You can walk up the hill to the centre of town, or wander up and down the narrow streets off the main drag.
Fondest memory: Make sure you take a walk along part of the city walls as the views are spectacular! We wandered along the walls after lunch, and sat for a while, gazing out across the valley, trying to capture the beauty on our inadequate cameras.
This is a stunning part of Tuscany and worth a visit if you are able.
