We had visited Montalcino twice and enjoyed the sweeping views from the walls of the old Fortezza built in the 14th century. The mighty fortress proudly protected the hill town of Montalcino at various times and is in remarkable condition now.

There is so much to see in Montalcino beyond the castle and fortress. The architecture is original and views from the walls just amazing! Take a bit of time to wander around and soak up the atmosphere.
