Day 8 - From Pienza to Montepulciano
This hike will get you passing through typical Tuscan farmhouses, beautiful open landscapes towards Mount Amiata. Stop at Monticchiello, a small borgo perched on top of a hill and known as the balcony of the Valdorcia, it retains a truly gothic fascination. After Monticchiello, straight to Montepulciano, a town built along a narrow ridge of limestone, surrounded by an imposing city wall, famous for its renaissance architecture. You will visit the Piazza Grande, Duomo, Palazzo Pubblico and others. Have also time to taste the "Nobile di Montepulciano", the town's winemaking symbol.
