New ideas for Montepulciano area

Jump to last reply

It has become a family (me, DH and 8 year-old DD) tradition to spend the last week of August outside of Montepulciano. It is incredibly relaxing and the food is so wonderful, we keep going back. It is a great way to wind down the summer. That said, I always like to try to add some new things to do/places to visit.

Things we do every time:
Eat at La Porta in Monticchello
Spend a half day in Pienza and another in Montepulciano (eat at La Grotta)
Winery visit (we have twice gone to Ciacci Piccolomin followed by lunch in Sant'Angelo in Colle, but might want to try something new)

Things we have done at least once:
Sant'Antimo (including monks)
Abbazia di Monte Oliveto Maggiore
The Gardens at La Foce
Hot Springs in Bagno Vignoni
Pitigliano (including the cool hiking paths)
Siena
Montalcino
Lago Trasimeno (visited Island)
Sarteano and Cetona (brief visits last year)
Chuisi (Etruscan museum/tunnels)

We tend to like to not take more than two driving long days. These are balanced with shorter days that end with the afternoon by the pool. I was thinking we might want to try exploring more to the east this year and spend more time in Sarteano and Cetona. But, I would love any other suggestions, towns to visit, museums, restaurants, etc...

Thanks!
