After two nights in Siena we went to the Tuscan village of Montepulciano. It was a great place to stay as a base and I liked the village itself although anytime we went to the grocery store it was a huge trudge uphill to get back.

Seen on a square near the apartment we rented.

We could see this every morning from our apartment. We were next door to a church.

The sillouhette of a figure that bangs on the bell every hour.

You see cyprus trees everywhere.

You could see an incredible view from every window in the village. Here was the sunset from the window of a local cafe.

  1. It all looks amazing, and your photos are brilliant , thanks for sharing. 🙂 Another place to visit.

    I hear you have one of the wonderful bloggers at your place in Paris .. how thoughtful 🙂

  2. btw I came back from my trip to the south of France a few pounds lighter .. it is the uphill walks that make the difference 🙂

  3. I can’t recall why, but the name of that village seems familiar to me (and I’ve certainly not been there — yet!) Was that the village where “Under the Tuscan Sun” author Frances Mayes bought her villa?

  4. I think that there is a well known family owned shop for handmade copper cookware in Montepulciano.
    The view from your apartment window is priceless!

  5. Love all those little hill towns, but Montepulciano, where we also stayed, was maybe my favorite. I loved how at night you could see the other towns’ lights twinkling across the hills like they were other ships in a big sea.
