In Montepulciano, our “Trattoria di Cagnano” brand offers a variety of quality facilities for visitors: in addition to the restaurant of the same name, we manage some holiday apartments with garden in the town centre, as well as two B&Bs: Meublé Evoè, and Meublé La Dimora del Corso.
Montepulciano id often called “the Pearl of the 1500s” for its wealth of art treasures by the leading architects and artists of the Renaissance, dating from the golden days of the Medici rule. The town preserves the enchanted beauty of its historic centre and showcases an endless series of palaces and churches attesting to the strategic, economic and cultural prominence of this Florentine outpost in Sienese territory.
Overlooking the splendid Piazza Grande – which has served again and again as a backdrop for movies and tv adverts – are the late 16th C. Cathedral and the Town Hall, clearly inspired by the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence; all around the square, is an array of elegant Renaissance palaces.
Rising at the Southern end of the province of Siena between the Orcia and Chiana valleys, Montepulciano is an excellent base to visit the main art centres of Tuscany and Umbria such as Siena, Arezzo, Cortona, Pienza, Montalcino, Chiusi, San Quirico d'Orcia and Orvieto, as well as several areas of outstanding natural beauty including the famous Crete Senesi, the Trasimeno lake, the bird sanctuary of the Montepulciano lake and Mount Amiata.
