All around the area is rich in castles and villages, and an example is the Castle of Fonterutoli where we will stop to admire the small medieval village surrounded by boundless vineyards, centuries-old woods in a setting of green hills. Stop for picture!!!

    • Stop At: Castellina In Chianti, Tuscany. 

    Only the spectacular road that one takes to get to this heavenly corner almost hidden among the sinuous hills of Chianti is enough reason to stop and visit the narrow stone streets and the characteristic historic center. However, as if that were not enough, Castellina boasts a past rich in history, in fact, walking along the main road you can admire the mixed medieval style and Renaissance influences from the two Renaissance cities par excellence of Florence and Siena.

Still little visited, it will give you the feeling of taking a walk in the ancient past .. Some images of the fantastic valley, which faces south, is the cradle of hundreds of plots of land cultivated with Sangiovese grapes
