Montalcino in Tuscany

Since the Etruscan age Montalcino had an important role because, thanks to  its position which stands upon a hill at the altitude of 564 metres, it could dominate both Ombrone and Asso valleys. In 1559 it was annexed to Florence and recently it came to limelight due to Brunello di Montalcino one of the most famous Italian wines. Our city tour begins with the view of the fortress (XIV C.) that dominates the village. Piazza Garibaldi is near by close to St. Egidio, a Romanesque-gothic church. Continuing our itinerary  we arrive in Piazza del Popolo where the Palazzo del Priore as soaring tower overlooks a loggia and other late medieval edifices.
Not far from here there is the cathedral, renovated in neoclassical forms during the XIX century. We can not finish our historical town centre tour  without visiting the St. Agustin Monastery. In whose interior there is an important collection of archaeological vestiges and medieval art works. Montalcino will be for you one of the most unforgettable destinations of your Tuscan journey.
