Tuscany in Winter: Montefollonico

Montefollonico sits across the valley from another hilltop town: Montepulciano. During Medieval times these cities were controlled by different families and were constantly at war with each other. It is relatively unchanged because it is off the tourist path and it still looks the way it did in the 13th century.

On this trip I decided to mostly use my Canon EF 70-200 mm 2,8 L IS II lens (instead of the usual 24-70), that’s why there are more close-ups and details than usual.

Montefollonico is a very small town with just a couple of narrow streets to explore. Even though it has interesting views and charming streets, I think you can skip it if you have just a couple of days in Tuscany.
