Montepulciano is an Italian commune located in the region of Tuscany. The main street of Montepulciano stretches along 11.5 kilometers from the Porta al Prato to the Piazza Grande at the top of the hill.
Most characteristic of Montepulciano is its main square (Piazza Grande) and the tower that presides thirteenth century town hall today.
Like many other Tuscan towns, Montepulciano is built on top of a hill, forcing tourists to go up and down hills, but this small effort is compensated with the views we have of the landscapes of Tuscany, by example, from Motepulciano looks Orcia valley, also a World Heritage Site.
Among the architectural works of art, we cannot skip mentioning the old and fascinating cellars where the “vino Nobile di Montepulciano” ages; this was the first Italian wine to receive the D.O.C. denomination in 1966 and that nowadays is still one of the sources of production of the country.
