Montalcino and the abbey of S. Antimo
This itinerary explores the south of the Province of Siena
We’ll drive up to the town of Montalcino, 564 meters above sea level with a splendid view of the surrounding landscape. There, we’ll visit the imposing 14th-century fortress, a jewel of military architecture that became the Sienese Republic’s last defense in 1555, prior to its inevitable fall. We’ll stroll through the streets of the historic center, and art lovers can visit the lovely Civic and Diocesan Museum.
Heading down into the valley below Montalcino, we’ll visit the evocative Abbey of S. Antimo, a well-preserved example of Romanesque architecture, where the monks still practice Gregorian chanting.
Wine lovers won’t want to miss a visit to a producer of the celebrated Brunello di Montalcino, often defined as Italy’s finest wine.
