Really loved this place! The one regret I have is that we did not plan the visit to experience the Gregorian mass on Sunday. Very much worth the time to experience this beautiful place!

Walk fro Montalcino ok but views not that great. Worth it for the exercise and the bus back is convenient.

I chose Montalcino because of the Brunello wine. You can see endless grape vines hanging low with grapes and experience beautiful views in & out of town. It’s definitely worth a stop!
