Montalcino tour: more than Brunello
More than Brunello
Montalcino, the last stronghold of the Sienese resistance against Florence, is situated on a high hill.
First, our tour will set off right from the 14th century fortress , where we will take some time to delve into the life of Blaise de Montluc, heroic defender of the Republic of Siena and passionate about women (but not the way you think!).
Afterwards, walking through the enchanting streets of the village, we will discover its churches, ancient fountains, palaces and historical loggias
Obviously there will also be stops to visit the Cathedral and the Sanctuary of the Madonna del Soccorso, which distinguish themselves, respectively, for sobriety and richness.
Many are the panoramic viewpoints from which you will enjoy the wonderful views of the surrounding valleys.
Our final stops will be the Abbey of Sant’Antimo, an evocative 12th century complex, founded by the emperor Charlemagne, according to the legend. The sober and solemn interior of the Abbey is characterized by the elaborate capitals and culminates in the light of the apse and in its wooden crucifix.
For those who are interested, a wine tasting of the excellent Brunello, Montalcino’s pride, is an absolute must offered by our tour…
