Places as fascinating as Montepulciano are quite rare. Here the Middle Ages and the Renaissance have created buildings and monuments of amazing beauty. The Piazza Grande, with its beautiful Cathedral and Palazzo Comunale, almost a copy of the Palazzo della Signoria in Florence, the Pozzo dei Grifi e dei Leoni (the Well of the Gryphons and Lions), designed by Antonio Sangallo with the coat of arms of the Medici. But Montepulciano is also widely known for its world-famous wine, the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, which visitors can taste in any of the many wine shops lining the town's streets.
