While staying in Montepulciano, we ventured out on driving excursions to visit the small villages in the area. Montefollonico is a picturesque hilltop village located across the valley and a rustic hiking trail connects the towns for trekkers.
Note I said “rustic trail,” and I’m not sure of the distance and details, so do your research. The trail head starts just below the church on the edge of the hill and there is a sign and map.
We walked around the small village and only saw a few people. Cleanly swept with flowers everywhere, it looks like a movie set.
