It’s Christmas again in Montepulciano, with the Santa Claus Village and Castle

The Christmas Village is back in Montepulciano after the extraordinary success of the previous editions and last year’s forced stop, with lots of new features and surprises for the whole family. A unique experience for young and old, a new and fun way to spend the Advent and Christmas season in harmony and tranquility in a fairytale setting, in one of the most beautiful places in the world.

The village hosts a typical market with wooden houses, the largest in Central Italy, where you will find many gift ideas for yourself and your loved ones. Then, you can dedicate yourself to the exciting visit of Santa Claus Castle, full of surprises and attractions, not only for the little ones. Information and opening days available on the event website

Free shuttle service

To encourage participation of visitors in the Christmas in Montepulciano while reducing traffic in the areas around the historic centre, the municipal administration has set up a free shuttle service running approximately every 30 minutes from 10.00 am to 7.00 pm.

In addition to the current weekend, the service will also be available on 27 and 28 November, 4 and 5 December, 8 December, 11 and 12 December; 18 and 19 December and 26 December.
