Visited Christiana in Chianti in October. What a lovely little Tuscan town. In the centre of it all is this castle with very unique architecture. It makes for great pictures from the piazza in front and from the surrounding countryside. I didn’t realize you could...More

It's a really nicely restored castle and affords some superb views across the town and surrounding countryside. There are some nicely arranged Etruscan exhibits, and the pleasant young lady curator offered us a small tablet computer with pictures and narration in English, but neither she...More

While walking around the town, we stumbled upon Rocca di Castellina and it was so incredible to see! This area is perfect for a day trip from Florence. So many amazing areas to take photos of -- especially the little church!

We were drving through this place onward to Greve in Chianti and decided to stop by this place. It was a good deicision. Awesome view to the landscape from here. Visited a local vineyard and went to a cafe for re-freshement.

Chianti is a really nice region and there are many nice hill top towns but this is my favourite, since we stumbled it up just driving SP222 route to Siena (recommended!). This is a really beautiful castle, and offers great views of surrounding countryside. Not...More
