Montalcino is a 12th century walled town commanding a magnificent position. On approach the dramatic fortress, built by the Sienese republicans in the 14th century as protection against the Florentines, stands out boldly on the horizon. This is is our home for 7 days of exploring a region rich in history, expansive scenery, the finest fortress hill towns and a centuries old spa town.
Our accommodation for the week is a three-star family run hotel situated inside the walls close to central piazzas. Although operating as a hotel over many centuries, our rooms have been recently rejuvenated with every modern facility yet retain their original charm and atmosphere.
