Castellina in Chianti

Tuscany, Italy
The quintessential Tuscan hilltop town.
We have chosen Castellina as one of our key destinations in Tuscany as this small town offers all the facilities most visitors need, while allowing them to enjoy the countryside. Public transport is limited, so you will definitely need a driver or rental car while you're here. On the edge of a village is a Vespa and Cinquecento (vintage Fiat car) rental company, should you want to indulge in a little nostalgic exploration of the surroundings. Close by you'll find San Gimignano, a "medieval Manhattan" well worthy of a day trip, and the walled town of Monteriggioni is even closer.
Whether you choose to go wandering in the countryside – there are some nice trails nearby – or visit Tuscany's major towns like Florence and Siena, you'll love coming back "home" to Castellina. This is the heart of wine country and the fruit of the vine is a big part of the culture here. With a choice of eateries from basic pizzeria to fine dining, and one of our favorite gelaterias of all time, Castellina's got a lot to like.
