Car-free tourism is one of Europe's most beautiful cultural movements
MONTEPULCIANO WITHOUT A CAR
Once you arrive in Montepulciano you can find everything you need for your stay within the town (remember that Montepulciano although famous, is a small village, you can cover it all in about half an hour),
Within a few minutes walk you can find restaurants, bars, mini-markets, hardware stores, stores of various kinds, while a few meters from the center are the classic supermarkets: Conad, Eurospin and "Acqua & Sapone."
And then museums, historic wineries, churches, palaces, scenic views, public gardens, promenades, in short, a small world to live in peace.
