About this location
The Tuscany region
Located in the heart of Italy, Tuscany is surely one of the most famous Italian landscapes. The essence of this beautiful region are its natural, artistic, and cultural heritage.
Bounded by the Ligurian and the Tyrrhenian Sea (two arms of Mediterranean), this region is divided into ten provinces, whose capitals are Arezzo, Florence, Grosseto, Livorno, Lucca, Massa-Carrara, Pisa, Pistoia, Prato and Siena. Florence is the capital city of the region itself.
Spring and fall are the best times to visit Tuscany, because the climate is mild. Bus-lines and trains connect the larger towns, but having a car would be a great advantage, and you would be easily able to enjoy the small towns and vineyards, which represent some of Tuscany’s strong points.
The “Chiantigiana road” is a must to see: it produces some of Italy’s finest wines. This is the colourful and legendary road of the “Chianti" region. The grape cultivation dates back to the Etruscan times. One of the biggest pleasures will be sipping different wines, at the wineries or at the wine bars scattered in the towns.
What about a drop in on “Mugello”? It is a countryside surrounded by oaks, chestnut trees and by the Apennines, This land of artists and painters have been source of inspiration in its farmhouses and colours. with kind people, authentic cooking, good wine, plus a great tradition in handicrafts.
Versilia is an area of 20 km sandy beaches located in the north of the region. The seaside with the colourful bathing areas is rich in bars and meeting places. Camaiore, Forte dei Marmi, Massarosa, Pietrasanta, Seravezza, Stazzema and Viareggio are the towns of this beautiful coast.
Montepulciano, is built along a narrow limestone ridge at 605 metres above sea level , it is surrounded by walls and by fortifications designed by Antonio da Sangallo il Vecchio. Montepulciano is well known for its Renaissance buildings, for its churches and for the “Vino Nobile” wines.
The town centre develops along the Corso that goes up the hill up to the central square, Piazza Grande, political and religious heart of the city. As you arrive at Montepulciano and overcome the Giardini di Poggiofanti, you find the Church of St. Agnese, patron of Montepulciano.
Inside there are a lot of works among which the monument that contains the body of St. Agnese. As you’ve gone beyond Porta al Prato, Via Roma begins, from here you come to a little square where a column shows the Marzocco symbol of the Florentine authority that replaced the She-wolf of Siena in 1511.
In front of it there is the Palazzo Avignonesi, attributed to Vignola an example of late-Renaissance architecture. Not far there is the Church of St. Bernard, a Baroque-taste work by Padre Andrea Pozzo and the Palazzo Tarugi , that presents late-Renaissance forms too.
Crossing Via Roma several Renaissance buildings can be seen such as Palazzo Cocconi-Del Pecora, realized by Anthonio da Sangallo il Vecchio and Palazzo Buccelli.
You arrive thus at the Church of St. Agostino, one of the most beautiful in Montepulciano. The façade was designed in the first years of 1400 by Michelozzo Michelozzi, follower and collaborator of Brunelleschi. The inside was reworked again in the XVIII century, here you can find works by Barocci, Allori and Lorenzo di Credi. The wooden crucifix of the high altar has been attributed to Donatello.
The characteristic Pulcinella of the XVI century is in front of the church, on the tower and it beats the hours on the bell. Going on, you still find palaces among which Palazzo Tarugi Cappelli, with frescos by Zuccari in the atrium, up to reach the Loggia del Mercato (Loggia of the Market), attributed to Ippolito Scalza.
