Cortona & Montepulciano

Cortona-MontepulcianoDuration: 10 hours     (starting at 8:00am)

Your English speaking driver-guide will meet you at your hotel in the city centre or any other place as previously arranged at around 7.30am to leave for your shared excursion into the Tuscan region, about 2 hours north of Rome, visiting Cortona and Montepulciano in a special encounter with history, great food and high quality wine. Cortona lies far atop a hillside dominating the south side of the “Chiana” Valley. The surrounding Etruscan walls contain the city’s beauty and nobility. From the fortress you can enjoy magnificent views of Lake Trasimeno and the surrounding forest along with vineyards and olive groves that produce some of the best wine and olive oil in all of Italy. As you explore the long narrow streets you will feel the appeal of Cortona, its people and its character.

After Cortona you will continue going to the hill town of Montepulciano, home of the famous “Vino Nobile di Montepulciano”, a wine that seems to originate in the 1300’s. The name probably comes from the fact that in ancient times noble families would choose the best grapes from the vine so that their tables would be graced with the highest quality of wines. Another fascinating attribute of Montepulciano is that it is one of the only places in the world where there are ancient underground cellars dating back to Etruscan times right in the heart of the town. Here you will visit one of these ancient cellars, below a city palace where the wine rests in Oak barrels maturing into what will be the future Vino Nobile. Take your time and discover that it is not only the famous wine that makes Montepulciano special but also the medieval atmosphere and friendly people. At the end of the tour you will drive back to Rome, about 2 hours, to be dropped off at your Hotel.
