Chianti Tuscany tours
 

An important centre of communication between Florence and Siena, positioned in the basin of The Arno, Chianti is an area to be visited, not only for its wine and oil production, but also for the unaltered rural beauty of the hills, the castles and farms immersed in the green of this generous earth.

On leaving Florence, we come across ancient towns and villages such as Impruneta. As well as the production of fine wines, they produced the terracotta that covers the dome of the Duomo of Florence.

Following the Chianti road, we find Verrazzano with its ancient castle and Greve, a small centre famous for wine production and its ancient wine cellars.

Continuing on what was once the Via Cassia dei Romani among vineyards and oaks, we find Panzano and its well preserved castle, and following the course of the River Arno we arrive at Radda in Chianti seat of the Gallo Nero wine association. South west of Radda, from the top of a gently sloping hill, Castellina dominates an ancient holiday town chosen by the Florentines of the Middle Ages who erected buildings that are still used as exclusive tourist residences. On the other side of the hill are San Gimignano with its city walls and 1000 towers, a town of extra-ordinary beauty, and Monteriggioni, an ancient fortress built on the hill that still preserves all of its beauty and Mediaeval history.
