NEW MOON TOUR
A walk around to discover the film set of New Moon. 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, which with its vermilion colour recalls the vital element of the vampires.
The tour will take you to the famous or less noted places of the city, that you will recognize or have recognized in some of the powerful scenes of the film: Vicolo della Concordia, Piazza delle Erbe and Piazza San Francesco, the film set for the desperate run by the young mortal Bella Swan in search of the fascinating good vampire Edward Cullen. Is a must to visit the Main Hallway of the Town Hall where Edward and Bella finally meet, set within the splendid frame of the Piazza Grande, where the picturesque scenes of the San Marco festival in honour of the Vultures have been filmed.
A stop at the Redi Cellar, an intriguing and mysterious place as well as the set for a scene of the film, and then have a look around for the traces of Edward, Bella and the others of the troupe: for example do you know where the actors were made up and where they have stayed during the filming? Or the restaurants chosen by Edward to escape the commotion and eat in peace a plate of pici? A tour to discover the city in every detail to take in all of its fascination.
At the end of the tour, you'll receive a small gift from Montepulciano, the city of the vampires, as a member of its new secret society!
