Montalcino and the Abbey of Sant’Antimo

60km 1h 10min

Montalcino will need no introduction, as it is one of Tuscany’s top attractions. The town stands at the top of a high hill, with views over the immense expanses of vineyards producing the town’s famous Brunello wine. Don’t miss the town’s imposing fortress and historic centre, with its many traditional craft, food and wine boutiques where you can sample and purchase the famous local wines. About 10 km from Montalcino is the Abbey of Sant’Antimo, a Romanesque construction of impressive size with a simple, unadorned interior. The monks continued to sing Gregorian chant until only a few years ago.
