Castellina in Chianti Vacation Packages

Castellina in Chianti, on a hill at the crossroads of the Arbia, Elsa and Pesa valleys, is set along the Chiantigiana road that connects Florence to Siena. It is one of the most important destinations in Chianti. The city`s origins go back to Etruscan times and came under Florentine control starting in the 12th century. It offers an imposing fortress. Along the ancient walls remains an underground tunnel, now called Via della Volte, a fascinating tunnel with shops and restaurants. The view of the surrounding Chianti countryside is marvelous. Inside Palazzo Squarcialupi, the Enoteca Antiquaria is now housed, a wine shop for over a 100 years which represents an important historical archive of wine and which has helped preserve the original characteristics of Chianti Classico wine itself.

Regions of Tuscany

  • Chianti Wine Region

    In the center of Tuscany - a charming hill-covered region offering a picturesque landscape of small stone villages, sprawling vineyards and olive groves.

  • Southern Tuscany

    South of Siena - Hill towns, valleys, medieval castles guarding narrow road passes and isolated farmhouses. Perhaps Tuscany`s most captivating and picturesque region.

  • South East Tuscany

    Land of castle-dominated hill towns, misty blue mountains, and the remnants of Apennine forests. Splendid landscapes with famous monastic settlements, century-old trees and Romanesque parishes.

  • Northwest Tuscany

    Relatively uncrowded between Florence and Pisa - Towns with true architectural beauty and charm: mazes of narrow streets, Romanesque churches and beyond them stretches a land of genteel spas such as Montecatini Terme.

  • Tuscany Coast

    Extensive beaches surrounded by high dunes and fresh pinewoods, characterized by clean water (certified blue flag beaches), interesting villages, and a background of the Apuan Alps.
