In the surroundings

Montepulciano, an enchanting town

Undoubtedly the flagship of the entire area is the town of Montepulciano which enchants with its many suggestive corners such as the main square, Piazza Grande, located in the highest part of the town. With its Renaissance palaces, Piazza Grande is still today the beating heart of city life for the many events that take place there. A destination for art and wine lovers, it is also the protagonist of many commercials and film sets such as, to mention only the last ones filmed here, the series produced by Rai "I Medici" and the commercial for the latest eau de parfume by Dolce & Gabbana. At the foot of the town, just outside the walls that served as a means of defense during past eras, is the imposing Temple of San Biagio. Do not miss a visit to the Civic Museum of Montepulciano which houses, among the many treasures on display, archaeological artifacts that testify to the Etruscan past of the town of Montepulciano and of the entire area, a collection of terracottas by Andrea Della Robbia and a painting attributed to Caravaggio.

The Chiana valley and its lakes

The whole Valdichiana offers a lot from a naturalistic point of view. Lake Montepulciano is a regional nature reserve. The Canale Maestro della Chiana is the main tributary and the only emissary of the lake. The two wetlands today represent the last evidence of the extensive marshes present in the Valdichiana before the great reclamation works begun in the Renaissance. It is worth paying a visit to Lake Chiusi and savoring dishes with unique flavors such as Brustico and Tegamaccio, in the small restaurants located on the shores of the lake. We are located on the border with Umbria and therefore a visit to the many beautiful villages overlooking Lake Trasimeno is not to be missed: Castiglione del Lago, Passignano, Tuoro, San Feliciano etc. A tip: the view of the lake that can be enjoyed from the perched village of the suggestive and little-known village of Monte del Lago is of great charm. Without equal.

Bravio delle Botti

All the people of Poliziano (as the inhabitants of Montepulciano are called) wait with great trepidation for an entire year for the Bravio delle Botti, a competition of great athletic effort whose victory will be rewarded with the delivery of the Bravìo, a painted cloth created every year by local artists . The race in which the barrels are pushed uphill is nothing more than the culmination of a long week of preparations in which each district organizes ad hoc events with lunches, dinners and entertainment for all those who wish to participate.

Christmas markets

For some years now, an event that lovers of the typically Christmas atmosphere have been waiting for: the Christmas markets in Montepulciano. In addition to the characteristic little houses set up in Piazza Grande which display local food and wine, artcrafts and other special items to give as gifts or bring to the festive tables, the Santa Claus Village set up inside the fortress will enchant visitors with the many settings to make the children fun and also make adults children again.
