The Chianti region is located in the heart of Tuscany, between Florence, Siena and Arezzo.


It is famous all over the world for its wine, but your landscape, villages and breathtaking views are also to be envied.


Every corner of this landscape tells a story that began centuries ago: the Etruscans were the first to change the landscape to cultivate vines, then the Romans to cultivate oil. Between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance also the municipalities of Florence and Siena started battles for its possession. Castles, strongholds, medieval villages are the testimony of an intense past history.

Discover the medieval villages of Chianti

The adventure begins by bike or on foot through the nature of Chianti. The ideal season to visit it’s autumn or spring, for the pleasant climate. From San Casciano in Val di Pesa, home of Chianti Classico, a tour starts in the northern part of Chianti between small villages such as Tavernelle Val di Pesa, Badia a Passignano and Barberino Val d'Elsa, where you can visit the Chianti Botanical Park.


In the Sienese Chianti area you will reach places like Castellina in Chianti, Radda and Gaiole in Chianti.


The Chianti valley is home to amazing rivers and lakes: we suggest you start from Pontenuovo, towards the Pesa river and stop off at Lake Fabbrica. Only 4 km away there is the Antinori Lake consisting of two small lakes and finally the Badia a Passignano Lake, a magical protected natural area.


Hills, expanses of vineyards and olive groves make this place unique and worth living to the fullest.


To live a fascinating holiday experience, we recommend a tour on the Chiantigiana, the provincial road that touches the main towns of Chianti, Impruneta, Montefioralle, Panzano, Valdelsa and San Gimignano, Poggio la Croce, Monteriggioni, up to Siena.
