Getting hungry?

Montalcino offers many options to taste a selection of local, traditional recipes.

The legend of the Abbey of Sant’Antimo

In the solitary Valle d’Orcia visit the Abbey of Sant’Antimo, one of the most beautiful Romanesque monastic monuments in Italy.

Legend has it that it was founded by Emperor Charlemagne in 781. It is said that on their way back from Rome along the ancient road Via Francigena, most of the Emperor’s army came down with the plague. When the Emperor’s prayers were answered and the pestilence ceased, he founded the Abbey.

More wine?
