Montalcino

Cities and Towns in Tuscany

Montalcino is a town which is situated in one of the most enchanting natural landscapes of the world.   The long lines of vines have assigned Montalcino a prestigious position amongst Italian wine producers. The fabulous Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino are exported throughout the world and considered to be amongst the very best Italian wines.

Montalcino represents a wealth of history with its unchanged Medieval appearance: the Castle of Artigiano, the Castle Poggio alle Mura, the Romitorio Fortress and the Church of St Resituita, not to mention the Nearby Abbey of St Antimo. Culture and art are present in the United Museums which combine the Civic Museum and Diocesan Museumwhere one finds a host of frescos from the Siennese school of the XII and XIV centuries.

Visitors can also experience the popular festivals which represent historical traditions, such as the tournament for the opening of the hunting season, or the Festival of the Thrush, a spectacular event with processions, period costume and local gastronomy.
