For example, many towns have their own pottery design. Some deisngers work directly with shopkeepers like the one in Montepulciano. This shopkeeper had such a lovely display of pottery that he commissioned.

The pottery can only be found in the small hill top town. If you don’t buy it there, you cannot buy it anywhere else.

Such beauty everywhere. And so many places to shop.

After all of our hill top town visits, Montepulciano was our all time favorite. But a word of caution, wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk, a lot.
