What is the best time of year to visit Montepulciano?
The Val d’Orcia is a fascinating and colourful scenery that can amaze its visitors every day of the year. Having said that, the very best period to visit the Tuscan countryside is probably the Spring, when the vegetation is greener and brighter and days are long and warm. Autumn could be a good idea too, if you love the warm coulours of the leaves in this season, and the Summer too, if you’re looking for a break from the heat of July and August.
