Montepulciano Vacation Packages

Montepulciano is an interesting walled hill town in Tuscany, built on a sloping and narrow limestone ridge in the heart of the Vino Nobile wine growing area and commanding the southeast part of Tuscany near the Umbrian border. It is the ancient Etruscan city of Nocera Alfaterna, (300BC). It is the biggest and highest of southern Tuscany`s hill towns with medieval alleyways, beautiful Renaissance palaces and churches as well as an impressive central square and views.

The fields around the town produce a violet-scented, orange-speckled ruby wine called Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. This area has been known since at least the 8th century for its superior wine. Vino Nobile is known as Tuscany`s number-two red because it`s slightly less beefy than Montalcino`s Brunello.




Regions of Tuscany

  • Chianti Wine Region

    In the center of Tuscany - a charming hill-covered region offering a picturesque landscape of small stone villages, sprawling vineyards and olive groves.

  • Southern Tuscany

    South of Siena - Hill towns, valleys, medieval castles guarding narrow road passes and isolated farmhouses. Perhaps Tuscany`s most captivating and picturesque region.

  • South East Tuscany

    Land of castle-dominated hill towns, misty blue mountains, and the remnants of Apennine forests. Splendid landscapes with famous monastic settlements, century-old trees and Romanesque parishes.

  • Northwest Tuscany

    Relatively uncrowded between Florence and Pisa - Towns with true architectural beauty and charm: mazes of narrow streets, Romanesque churches and beyond them stretches a land of genteel spas such as Montecatini Terme.

  • Tuscany Coast

    Extensive beaches surrounded by high dunes and fresh pinewoods, characterized by clean water (certified blue flag beaches), interesting villages, and a background of the Apuan Alps.
