Castello delle Serre


From Castello delle Serre, simply take the motorway in the direction of the A1 and Perugia. Exit at Sinalunga, drive through Torrita di Siena and proceed to Montepulciano. We suggest using one of the pay parking areas, by the Porta al Prato and the church of Sant’Agnese, outside the ancient walls of the town. Montepulciano is one of our favorite hill top towns as it offers something for everyone. History and architecture, quality shopping and excellent wine production all take place here. Kids will enjoy exploring the Eturscan caverns, tombs and wells deep under the foundations of the town’s majestic buildings. Starting at Porta al Prato and walking up the main street toward Piazza Grande, will permit visitors to see the most. Wine lovers can visit the headquarters of Consorzio del Vino Nobile to learn what makes this historic wine so special. From Montepulciano it is possible to visit Pienza, the next village on the Val D’Orcia loop.
