A holiday in close contact with nature may also be associated with visits to tourist and cultural destinations. This aim can be reached by making visits to interesting sites and famous artistic towns such as Siena, with its superb Piazza del Campo where every year, in July and August, there is the famous Palio horse race; Arezzo, an ancient medieval town with its Giostra del Saracino (a medieval jousting tournament contested by the various districts of the city in an exciting challenge till the last blow of the lance, held on the last but one Saturday of June and the first Sunday of September) and Florence, one of the most enchanted and renowned artistic city in the world, rich in important monuments such as the Duomo (the Cathedral), Piazza della Signoria, Ponte Vecchio (the Old Bridge) and the masterpieces exhibited in one of the most important museums in the world, namely the Uffizi Gallery. Other less-known, albeit not less intriguing, destinations may be discovered by consulting our guidebook we provide for free to our guests (see the guidebook). Near Montemaggiore you can visit genuine medieval villages such as Rapale, Sogna and Montebenichi; the Chianti region, just few kilometres away, is an endless sequence of marvellous hills characterized by well-preserved villages and breathtaking views.
Shopping-addicts can find the outlets of renowned fashion brands such as Prada, Gucci, Fendi, Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Jill Sander and Helmut Lang, few kilometers from Montemaggiore, near the exits of the highway A1 Autostrada del Sole.
