Fodor's Expert Review Vertine

Gaiole in Chianti Town/Village

Dating back to the 10th century, this walled town is oval in shape and has a tall watchtower guarding the entrance gate. A walk along the still unspoiled streets gives you a glimpse of life in a Tuscan hill town as it once was, and the views of the undulating countryside from the occasional opening in the walls are simply spectacular.
