Train travel is cheap and easy from Rome and Pisa international airports and lifts to and from the train station, as well as into town, can be arranged.

Further activities:

Apart from the artistic and historical treasures to be discovered, there are local festivities and events in every little town. To mention just a few, the donkey race in Torrita di Siena is accompanied by processions in medieval dress and an impressive flag waving performance, and the yearly barrel pushing contest up the streets of Montepulciano in August is immensely popular. At the internationally acclaimed Teatro Povero di Monticchiello where residents take part in an open-air theatre in the summer , local cooking can be sampled in the evenings in the crypt of the church. Last but not least the wonderful countryside and picturesque streets of the little towns make this a walker's paradise.

Beautiful home, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5
This is a fantastic property! Located just minutes from Montapulciano, the farmhouse annex is set in the middle of a gorgeous vineyard. Some of our best evenings were spent under the pergola watching spectacular sunsets. The house is exceptionally well-maintained, clean and spacious. The interior photos don't do it justice! The owner of the property was very helpful and knowledgeable.

Montepulciano, a beautiful renaissance hilltop town of Etruscan origins in the heart of Tuscany and home to a famous wine, is circa 100 kms south of Florence and 150 kms north of Rome. It is within easy reach of the A1 Milan-Rome motorway and within a couple of hours' drive from the international airports of Rome, Pisa, Florence and Perugia. Easily visitable are the cities of Perugia, Siena, Arezzo, Orvieto and Florence (to name the best-known), as well as smaller places of historic and artistic interest such as Pienza, Cortona and Montalcino. Of local interest are the thermal resorts of San Casciano Bagni and Rapolano Terme, famous for their waters since Roman times, and the hot springs of Bagno Vignoni with its ancient Roman bath. This area is the home of the ancient Etruscans, with Italy's most famous Etruscan museum in the nearby little town of Chiusi, half an hour's drive away.
