Pienza and Montepulciano, discovering the Valdorcia region

Share

Tuscany offers clients a variety of characteristic hilltowns and enogastronomic delights that vary from one area of the region to the other. Pienza and Montepulciano are located in the picturesque "Val d'Orcia". Sitting at an elevation of 605 mt. (about 2000 ft.) Montepulciano offers wonderful sceneries over the Tuscan rolling hills. Like several other Tuscan site, Montepulciano has Etruscan origins and a Roman history. Developed mainly in the Medieval era and in the Renaissance. Our tour will start from the top of the peak where the famous Piazza Grande features the Town Hall, the Cathedral and other important Renaissance palaces. We will work our way down immersed in the magical atmosphere realised by the unique architecture of both Medieval and Renaissance times. The ancient roads are lined up with merchants selling local products such as the famous cold cuts from wild boar meat, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, the Pici pasta and more. Definitely worthwhile sampling.

Pienza, once a sleepy medieval hilltown was transformed into what was to be Pope Pius II's idea of the ideal Renaissance city in the 15th century. The city's memorable vistas off the main piazza are breath-taking as the Cathedral seems to slip off the hillside. This area is known worldwide for the most exquisite production of Pecorino (sheep cheese). While walking along the narrow renaissance streets of Pienza you will be submerged by the scents coming from the little shops selling this local treasure. Cheese vendors will be glad to offer you a sampling of the massive variety of Pecorino: be it aged in ashes, underground, in bay leaves, with truffle, with spices, etc. The city today has been marked by the UNESCO registrar as one of the world's great heritage monuments.
