MUSEUM OF TEATRO POVERO DI MONTICCHIELLO
The ancient granaries of the village now house the TEPOTRATOS Museum of Traditional Tuscan Popular Theater, which allows the visitor-spectator to perceive emotions, immersed in a communicative universe made up of noises, voices, fragments of dialogues, objects and images that recall the peasant world.
It is not a museum about the Teatro Povero, but a museum of the Teatro Povero di Monticchiello.
The visit to the set-up is free, for more information visit the site www.teatropovero.it
SPA & WELLNESS
The Province of Siena is rich in thermal springs with beneficial and curative waters. To disconnect from the routine we recommend at least one day dedicated to the care of body and mind, in natural pools or in modern spas. A few kilometers from us Bagno Vignoni, Bagni San Filippo, San Casciano dei Bagni, Chianciano Terme, Rapolano Terme…
And for CHILDREN? The brand new Theia pools just 10 km from Monticchiello!
SNACKS and TASTINGS
Our Province of Siena: so small but so rich in excellent eno-gastronomic products: noble wines, meats and cheeses; honey, truffle, saffron. Already in Monticchiello, in the numerous wineries in the area or in the most renowned locations you can start this journey of taste, supported if you want by our advice:: WRITE TO FUTURA!
PICNIC: we would not like to make a difference, but our favorite is CASEIFICIO CUGUSI between Pienza and Monticchiello!
Discovering the lands of Siena on horseback means relying on the senses and integrating perfectly into a pure and uncontaminated environment, such as that of the Val d’Orcia, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
From a simple activity to a real excursion, the horse ride is suitable for adults and children, and today there are many riding schools or even farmhouses that offer this entertainment.

THEATER and CULTURE
The Teatro Povero di Monticchiello has been staged every year since 1967 between July and August. The show is written, directed and performed by the people of the town, which is why it has been defined as an “autodrama”, as the citizens, by acting themselves, testify their reality and authentic existential and social situations.
Poli has always acted. We are proud to support our small community in this way!
