Car-free tourism

Car-free tourism is one of Europe's most beautiful cultural movements


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.
