On the border between Tuscany and Umbria, Montepulciano and Cortona are enchanting small hilltop towns. Montepulciano blends medieval roots, elegant Renaissance buildings, hyper photogenic corners and stunning panoramas onto the Val d’Orcia and Valdichiana. Cortona is another gem, a lovely town to stop by for a stroll, do some shopping in the many antiques shops, to seat in piazza for a coffee or a spritz.
