KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
Chiefly known for its good local 'Vino Nobile' wines, Montepulciano lies to the southeast of Siena, on the summit of one of the hills that separates the Valdichiana from the Val d'Orcia. Built along a narrow limestone ridge at 605m above sea level, the town is encircled by walls and fortifications designed by Antonio da Sangallo the Elder in 1511 for Cosimo I. Inside the walls the streets are crammed with Renaissance-style palazzi, churches, restaurants, shops and a fabulous atmosphere. The main square 'Piazza Grande' is surrounded by magnificent buildings such as the Palazzo Publico, the Cathedral with unfinished fa?ade begun in 1594 from a design by Ippolito Scalza, and several residences by Vignola, Sangallo and Peruzzi.
Montepulciano celebrates several traditional events and is considered an important cultural and tourist centre. Between July and August, Piazza Grande becomes a stage for concerts and for the Cantiere Internazionale d'Arte International Arts Workshop, which includes musical shows, theatre productions and exhibitions of figurative art. The event has attracted such interest and acclaim on the international cultural scene that as many as three hundred artists of all nationalities make their way here every year to take part.
During the mid-August holidays it is traditional for the people of Montepulciano to perform the 'Bruscello', a traditional street-theatre show in verse whose origins date back to the Middle Ages. At the end of August the homage to the community's greatest production takes place - the 'Bravio delle Botti', a competition between the 'contrade', the different districts of the town. This is a historical procession in 14th century dress followed by a barrel-rolling race, where empty wine barrels are rolled up through the town in a race to Piazza Grande. Still in August, the 'Interprovincial Exhibition of Arts and Crafts' is organised inside the Fortress where some of the best works of Tuscan artists are on display.
Thanks to its excellent wine, it's history, the artistic treasures to be found there, and the beauty of the surrounding countryside, Montepulciano is becoming increasingly sought-after as a destination for the discerning tourist. These two properties, situated in the historical centre of Montepulciano, offer comfortably furnished accommodation at a sensible price. Traditional features including, terracotta brick and beamed ceilings, combined with the extraordinary views and central heating, make this apartment an attractive and viable option at any time of the year.
