The morning espresso or the afternoon cappuccino enjoying the Val di Chiana-view or the "aperitivo" before dinner (same view of course). The historic Caffe Poliziano deserves its place on my places to visit list in Montepulciano. Beautiful interior, professional service personnel, delicious "dolci", ... I...More

We were lucky enough to get a seat in the balcony and the view is just amazing. You won't go wrong with ice coffee and espresso. The Vin Santo for the cantuccini unfortunately wasn't very good.

Caffè Poliziano Historical Place of Italy.This spacious and elegant Caffè in the historical centre of Montepulciano is a fine example of Art Nouveau design. For generations visitors and local residents have been able to enjoi a glorious view of of the Valdichiana from the balcony. Distinguished guests have included Carducci, Pirandello, Prezzolini, Malaparte, Mario del Monaco, Giulietta Masina,Ornella Muti,, Mario monicelli, Marina Doria di Savoia, Enrico Rava, Mauro Bolognini, Giorgio Battistelli, Licia Colò.... In 1992 the Caffè was lovingly restored to its former glory. Federico Fellini, who visited the "Poliziano" soon after, considered the atmosphere and style to be worthy of a great Central European city such as Vienna or Prague.
