Travel Tips for Montepulciano
Cypress lined road near La Foce
This is an image you will see everywhere in Tuscany on postcards: a beautiful winding road lined with cypress trees on either side. I think it looks beautiful so I set out to take a photo of a road like this myself.... but wow, that is easier said than done!
This road might be famous on the postcards and a symbol for the landscape in Tuscany, but it is actually very hard to find one for real. After driving around the whole afternoon, enjoying the surrounding landscape and visiting some villages, finally, just minutes before the sunset I found 'my' road! Hahaha, I can't tell you how happy that made me :-))
Did you know that these cypress roads have a sad history to them? These trees were often planted along roads to commemorate the dead from wars.
Beautiful beautiful beautiful
"Return to Montepulciano"
In 2003, we stopped a Montepulicano for just a day. It is a lovely town, and we vowed to come back.
This year we made good on our promise. We stayed in Montepulciano for 3 days, sampling the very good Vino Nobile made in this region, and visiting the small towns (Montalcino, Pienza, San Quirico etc) in the surrounding area.
While there isn't a lot to do in the town, it a wonderful place to wander the winding up- and down-hill streets, and to just relax.
Our hotel had beautiful views of the surrounding rolling hills and great access in and out of town. It was wonderful once again.
