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.

Castellina in Chianti is a great and picturesque small village in top of one of those great Tuscan hills and La Rocca is the highlight of the village. It has great historical significance as it is where the Chianti league was based as pace keepers of the Florence-Siena battles for the region. Great to Visit either from Florence or Siena

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 even touristy !

Chianti is an amazing region and it is a must visit. The views are breathtaking, the architecture of the small towns/villages is lively, the food and wine is perfect.

For €5 you can visit both the museum and climb the tower at this site. The museum has some interesting artefacts from the Etruscan era, as well as some much older pottery fragments. The tower is more interesting as you get some excellent views from the top of the surrounding countryside. It's not too strenuous a climb, and shouldn't be... More

This is a charming wine proud town with interesting shops, a lovely church, castle with high tower including a most interesting Etruscan Museum in a single complex. There's a modern elevator for those with particular needs not to have to miss this little treasure, enclosed in most interesting architectural appointments with relics from as far back as at least seven...

If in Florence and/or Siena this is one of four Chianti Classico towns to visit, all can be completed in one day. Castellina is the first to be visited, there is a small piazza with Rocca which now acts as the town hall a underground passageway called the Via delle Volte leads into the center of town.

A beautiful building where your marriage can be hosted without feeling that you are in a town hall. The structure inside is really beautiful.

Small castle, now a post office. Nice restaurant on location. 30 mins is enough to go around. What you see is what you get. Nothing really inside it. Castellina town though is really pretty.
