There are lovely views all around and it is easy to reach many interesting places in Southern Tuscany such as Chianciano which for centuries has been noted for its thermal baths and ancient Montepulciano on its hilltop between the Val di Chiana and the Val d’Orcia. Apart from its production of excellent wines, this area of Southern Tuscany is also famous for the many thermal spas and health farms.
A medieval and Renaissance hill town and comune in the Italian province of Siena in southern Tuscany. Montepulciano is a major producer of food and drink. Renowned for its pork, cheese, “pici” pasta, lentils, and honey, it is known worldwide for its Nobile wine. Connoisseurs consider its Vino Nobile, which should not be confused with varietal wine merely made from the Sangiovese grape, among Italy’s best.
Le Terme di Montepulciano
Whether because of the wine or of the healthful waters, Montepulciano is always a place where it is easy and pleasant to reclaim the best that life can offer. Its waters spring in a green dell, where a veritable temple devoted to beauty and health now rises.

Its gentle, cultivated hills are occasionally broken by gullies and by picturesque towns and villages such as Pienza (rebuilt as an “ideal town” in the 15th century under the patronage of Pope Pius II), Radicofani (home to the notorious brigand-hero Ghino di Tacco) and Montalcino (the Brunello di Montalcino is counted among the most prestigious of Italian wines). Its landscape has been depicted in works of art from Renaissance painting to modern photography.
