The most important town of the Valdichiana Senese, Montepulciano has become one of the most famous places in all of Tuscany. The historic center slopes uphill, from Porta al Prato to the Renaissance Piazza Grande, home to important edifices such as the Duomo, the Palazzo Comunale, the Palazzo dei Capitani, Palazzo Nobili-Tarugi and Palazzo Contucci. Many historic wine cellars populate the city center, known for its production of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, and many are still aged in underground caves, in the same way they were in the time of Francesco Redi, in the 1600s, who considered it to be the King of all wines. From the historic center you can reach beautiful villages nearby with scenic treks up to Montefollonico and Monticchiello for example.
