Within the old walls of Montalcino, there are still six gates visible: Porta Cerbara (Cervara), Porta al Cassero, Porta al Cornio, embedded in the Church of the Madonna del Soccorso, Porta Burelli o Murelli, Porta Castellana and Porta Gattoli.

Montalcino provides the perfect location for trekking or trail running. There is a beautiful walk from Montalcino to the famous Romanesque Abbey of Sant'Antimo. The itinerary starts from the Porta al Cassero near the Fortress of Montalcino. The Porta al Cassero is one of the six entry gates to the walled town. You walk along dirt roads, through vineyards and woodlands to the small pieve in Villa a Tolli, and further on to the Abbey of Sant'Antimo, the absolute highlight of this itinerary.

The six gates of Montalcino

 

One of Tuscany's best kept secrets is the beautiful valley sheltering this recently renovated 18th century farm house, in the Valle d’Ombrone. Podere Santa Pia is located in a strategic position, only a short distance from a large number of sites of historical and cultural interest. Numerous towns and villages offer a treasure trove of history and art waiting to be discovered. Drive through the magnificent hills of the Montecucco wineregion all the way to Montalcino, and enjoy the beauty of villages and hamlets along the way. And with roughly 250 wineries producing Brunello di Montalcino, Rosso di Montalcino and other Tuscan DOC wines, a wine tour is always a good idea.
