Castellina in Chianti

Castellina in Chianti, or simply Castellina, is on a ridge above the Val di Pesa, Val d'Arbia, and Val d'Elsa, with beautiful panoramas in every direction. The imposing 14th-century tower in the central piazza hints at the history of this village, which was an outpost during the continuing wars between Florence and Siena. Don't miss a walk along Via delle Volte, a covered passage that follows the medieval walls on one side of the town.
