As far as we know, the New Moon movie will be shooting in Montepulciano, Italy instead of the Italian town mentioned in the book, Volterra. With that in mind, let’s take a tour of the sights of Montepulciano and see if it’s up to the task of filling in for the sights of Volterra that we’ve shown you previously!

Check after the break for 20+ high-res pics of Montepulciano!

  • darceydanielle

    your an idiot..if you have read it sooo any times you should know how to spell! Its is in the city of Volterra..and the vampites are the Volutari…

  • Eling_Teoh

    Twilight , New Moon Eclipes and Breaking Dawn

  • Luiza Milano

    Bellissimo! Stupendo! Very nice the pictures of Montepulciano! That's a wonderful city! You have to come to know!

  • kaylynnedesjarlais

    Oh my gawdd!!! It is exactly how I thought it looked in the book and also a little bit better. I think that this is going to be an awesome place to film it and I think that everyone who got to go to Italy to film it is so lucky!!!!!!
    Go Robsten!!!! All the way!!!!!!!!!!

  • twilightluvinmommy

    They didn't even film the first movie, twilight, in Forks Washington… They actually filmed it in Oregon somewhere, Forks was said to be too expensive or something like that, at least they are filming it in Italy not in a studio with a green screen or anything like that…..

  • dorsa_cullen

    darceydanielle,
    ur an idiot urself….the vampires are the Volturi not the Volutari ! =)) I-D-I-O-T !!!~~~

  • JocobMyHottie

    Ok i think he is right the volutari run the town volterra

  • JocobMyHottie

    I love jacob too yes he gets annoying but the stories would be nothing with out him and plus he is awesome eye candy Yummy Yummy

  • http://twitter.com/nblovesya natalie b

    woah i never looked at those pics before thank god i was bored and decided to look at these pics:D

  • Z28

    I have to agree with you on that.

  • CrazyCullenCookie

    umm, u cant spell either. They are the Volturi vampires that live in Volterra, not the Volutari. and there vampires, not vampites

  • CrazyCullenCookie

    so f*ing what ig Taylor Lautner !!! Edward only left because he was trying to protect bella. Jacob also didnt protect bella very well, (ahem, cliff diving) and if he did, then there wouldnt be a need to film in Italy.

  • emma

    i cant even understand you!!!! u didnt spell anything rite and i cant read your comment

  • TheWolfPack'sHomeGirl(Word)

  • EdwardsHomeGirl

    ok so i know i just wrote a comment but i have more thoughts:
    this place seems exactly how i imagined it! this is such an amazing place!
    it seems exactly like a place like volterra would be!
    i need to stop writing things in lists and actually post the dang comment!
    ok so bye now!

  • EdwardsHomeGirl

  • EdwardsHomeGirl

    ummm i dont think they ANSWER you….i think you just write it for ppl to see.

  • Spectra

    Yes, they finished a few weeks ago.

  • EdwardsHomeGirl

    omg that is sooooo cool! i can't beleive i didnt even know they started!

  • nikki :)

    is montepulciano cooler than volterra?

    i haven't been in italy.

  • lilykaro

    When Stephenie wrote the book, she first never named the place, it's after, she look for a city that was not to far from the airport, so Alice could drive her super car. The she realise that Voltera existed, and was actualy freaking out because without knowing, she created the same city in her book!

    See her web site to have the details !

    I went to Montepulciano last month! I happened to be staying with friends who live in Chiusi and we took a trip there! IT WAS AMAZING! Stood in THE doorway RP stood and ate in the cafe where they did all his make up!! It was amazing..beautiful place. And yes Volterra is no where near as picturesque as Montepulciano…although they did have to build the fountain specially for the film!

  • les_24

    I like your idea

  • les_24

    sorry but i disagree the vampire coven is volturi and they live in volterra

  • les_24

    It is spelled volturi look it up in a book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:00000000

  • teamedwardgirl

    NEW MOOON IS AMAZING – I saw it last week, Montepulciano is beautiful, but I thought it was Assisi at first…I went there in October and it looks just like it!

    Because such place does not exist. Volterra isn't a real town/city.
