Castellina in Chianti Travel Guide

Little matches the glorious indulgence of a leisurely stroll through Castellina. Not only is the surrounding scenery intoxicating, but the town itself is a historical masterpiece; established by the Etruscans, Castellina was fortified by the Florentines in the 15th century as a defensive outpost against rivals in Siena. Beautiful, tranquil, and idyllic, Castellina is now a major center of the Chianti wine industry, as the large silos brimming with Chianti Classico on the town’s approach attest. The ideal pitstop for those traveling between Florence and Siena, the town’s archaeological museum is also not to be missed. Etruscan antiquities and other rare artifacts merit a day’s exploration.
