Monte San Savino. The City of Pope Julian III
Duration: 3 ore
This small town situated in the Valdichiana reached its apex during the fifteenth century when the Ciocchi-Del Monte family assumed power in the area. This family produced important figures such as Cardinal Antonio, a friend of Pope Julian II and the Medicis, and the Pope’s nephew Giovanni Maria, who became pontiff in 1550 with the name Julian III. The visit takes place in the historic center, where it is possible to admire the town’s Fortress, The Palazzo Del Monte, the Logge, the churches and the interesting Jewish Ghetto.
