Would you like to discover the places to enjoy the best glass of Brunello di Montalcino, or tuck into an enticing plate of “pinci,” or sample the finest local oil and honey? Visit Montalcino with me and I’ll take you to less-frequented spots. I’ll tell you about the wartime moments in history that upset this land of the so-called “beccamorti”and I’ll show you the art treasures of the Diocesan Museum. If you’d like, I’ll take you to the nearby Abbey of Sant’Antimo, built of brilliant local onyx, and we’ll walk along the streets of the town of Buonconvento, still girthed by the Medieval city walls while also boasting splendid examples of Art Nouveau architecture, a magnificent museum of Sienese art, and a museum dedicated to the area’s tenant-farming system of the past.
