Chianti may be famous for its wine but if you are planning a visit to this scenic part of Italy, take your time to enjoy the stunning landscapes.
Chianti is Tuscany at its best, and no trip to this beautiful region would be complete without a tour of the local vineyards. Vast swathes of green countryside blanketed with vineyards and olive groves attract visitors from far and wide.
There are two central train stations in Chianti: one in Poggibonsi and the other in Castellina that connect Florence and Siena. You need to change trains at the Empoli train station if you're coming or going to Florence.
The Chianti wine region extends between Florence and Siena and extends to Valdarno in the east and Val d´Elsa in the west.
Greve in Chianti is a lively town, famous for its piazza which has been the main market place for the region since the Middle Ages.
Panzano, just a few kilometres south of Greve is home to the Castle of Panzano which once defended the Florentine Republic during the battles between Florence and Siena.
