Southern Tuscany

Montepulciano is a medieval and Renaissance hill town and province of Siena in southern Tuscany. It sits high on a 605 m and 186 km north of Rome by car.
Montepulciano is a major producer of food and drink. Renowned for its pork, cheese, “pici” pasta, lentils, and honey, it is known world-wide for its wine. Connoisseurs consider its Vino Nobile, which should not be confused with varietal wine merely made from the Montepulciano grape, among Italy’s best.

Nearby you have Chianciano that is known for its thermal springs and many Spas.
