On more than 70 km Via Chiantigiana presents us one of the biggest wine-growing areas of Southern Europe. There are several small towns alongside the route waiting to be explored, among them Panzano in Chianti and Fonterutoli. Just let your eyes wander over Tuscany‘s gentle hills, the marvellous vineyards and olive groves, framed by picturesque woods.

From Florence, the cradle of the Renaissance, we drive along in southern direction to the medieval city of Siena past Ugolino Golf Course and the medieval fortress of Castellina in Chianti.

Author’s recommendation

Stop by at one of the traditional small towns alongside Via Chiantigiana to get an idea of the interesting way of live in the country. The landscape and rural tranquility will make you slow down and enjoy the trip even more.
