Art towns

Tuscany is known for its rich artistic legacy. The region boasts six localities designated as UNESCO world heritage sites: the historical centers of Siena, Florence, San Gimignano and Pienza, Pisa’s cathedral and the Val D’Orcia. The region around Montalto itself is incredibly rich, particularly in art, architecture and history. A large portion of the masterpieces of Italian art can be found in Tuscany — not only in the major museums, such as the Uffizi in Florence, the Pinacoteca Nazionale in Siena, and the Etruscan museum in Chiusi, all of which are within easy reach — but also in the churches, palaces and squares of every town and village and the abbeys, castles and simple centuries-old farmhouses that dot the countryside.
