Pienza – Montichiello – Montepulciano

Today we explore the renaissance town of Pienza enjoying the delicious smells of Pecorino cheese and admiring the Duomo and Palazzi in its idyllic piazza. Then walk along country lanes to the walled hamlet of Monticchiello and through the vineyards to Montepulciano, where an avenue of Tuscan cypresses lead us to the renaissance Tempio di San Biagio. We enter the town through a medieval gate and arrive in the main square via the 14C vaulted cellars of the Cantina del Redi, where you can taste the local Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. (4hrs/8miles)
