Montaione Holidays

Montaione holidays bring you a taste of Tuscany’s beautiful landscapes and rich history. Surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and fragrant citrus orchards, the town is perched on a hillside, overlooking spectacular farmlands and the surrounding villages. Couples will love the opportunity to relax and immerse themselves in the Medieval town’s culture, while adventurers have plenty to keep them entertained in the local area. Take a cooking class and learn to create classic Tuscan dishes using fresh ingredients from the area’s farmlands, hike through the rolling green hillsides or explore pretty towns as you cycle through Tuscany.

Montaione holidays bring you the best of both worlds. Enjoy the rural feel of this sleepy village, tucked away in the centre of Tuscany. Within an hour’s drive away are the historic sights of Pisa, beautiful Siena and artistic Florence. The town itself is home to winding streets which date back to its Medieval past, as well as local cafés, restaurants and bars offering up exquisite cuisine. Head out into the countryside and explore the many Chianti vineyards, perfect for a day spent tasting wines and learning about the processes used to create them.

A holiday in Mantaione provides the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in Italian culture. Spend your days getting lost among the maze of narrow cobbled streets, stumbling across little piazzas where the locals sit outside to chat, play chess and drink espresso. Order local delicacies or pick up delicious wines grown within walking distance of the town. To see the town at its most lively, visit Piazza Gramsci on a Friday and get lost in the bustle of its vibrant market.

Explore Montaione’s architecture as you wander through its crooked streets. Stop in San Regolo Church, the town’s oldest building, which dates back to the 13th Century. Admire its paintings and simple lines as well as the striking bell tower. Perhaps the main attraction of the town is the Pretorian Palace, which dates back to the 13th Century. Once home to a royal family, it’s now a local library and museum dedicated to the area’s history.

When to go

Tuscany is predominantly a summer destination, with the main tourist season generally running from April to October. Temperatures are at their hottest in July and August, this is also when Tuscany is at its busiest. However, Tuscany also enjoys a mild climate in spring and autumn with temperatures rarely going beneath 20 degrees which makes it perfect for visiting at the beginning or end of season too. The coast has wonderful sea breezes and the hilltop towns are much cooler than the lower countryside villages. The best time to visit is during the quieter season, from April to June and September to October when the weather is good, prices are a bit lower and there are fewer crowds. There are many festivals and events throughout the year in Tuscany and Easter and Christmas are always busy.

Visa Information

At the current time, British citizens do not require a visa to visit Italy.
