The Strada del Vino Nobile
proposes for the fans the New Moon Tour, to see the movie sets:
A day in Montepulciano to discover the film set of New Moon and the charm of a city rich in art and history.
And what set could be a better background to the mysterious misadventures of the night creatures such as the vampires, if not Montepulciano, home to Vino Nobile, with its vermilion colour that recalls the vital element of the vampires.
The tour will take you to the famous and less noted places of the city, that you will recognize or have recognized in some of the powerful scenes of the film. A guide will introduce you not only to the secrets, indiscretions and movie details but also to Montepulciano’s history and traditions, the reasons why the movie director choose it as the set for the New Moon.
A stop, on request, in one of the restaurant chosen by Edward and Bella for a light lunch to taste the typical products of these area.
One and a half hours to discover the city in every detail and to take in all of its fascination.
