A charming medieval tower & structure with quite spectacular views of Castellina and the vineyard's covered hillsides & valleys. Chianti has innumerable shades of green - & lovely sunshine.

Castellina was our 'base' town as we were staying at a nearby agriturismo so we walked by this tower before finally going into the museum and up the tower itself. It does not look like much from the outside but inside, you get a feel for what it must have been like for those who actually lived here. Go to... More

In a small but very quaint, clean town, this site combines a small, historical museum and a climb to the top of the tower, where you get a spectacular view of the Chianti region countryside

Right in the center of this quaint town, the exhibits were interesting. Even better were the views from the top of the tower - over the town and the countryside. The whole town was a lovely walk and visit.

This is a great little museum with friendly staff. The access to the Tower is the main bonus and the views over castellina and the countryside are great. Make sure to also visit the Etruscan tombs at the Calvary Mount

A small but quality collection of artifacts, well laid out and with signage that gave us a good appreciation of the areas history. Worth a visit

We drove into Castellina which was recommended to us by a fellow traveler. So glad that we visited and saw this charming little town. You can walk the entire town in about 30 minutes but do visit the castle, little shops, and have lunch/dinner under the tunnel- passage way. Also, visit an amazing photographer, Andrea Rontini, who uses a pre-digital... More

We spent a week visiting the town enjoying the restaurants, shops and the wonderful gelato shop and really didn't pay any attention to this Castle until the day we were leaving. I can't judge the quality of the Etruscan artifacts but they are well labelled and carefully displayed. The view from the top though is sensational. You can see for... More

If you like old towns and nice views, this is the place for you. It's small enough to walk from end to end in one afternoon at a relaxed pace, but it's big enough to keep you entertained throughout. At almost every bend there is a breathtaking view, a picture opportunity, nice little caffe. And, for some reason, lots of... More

We have been coming here since 1999 and I finally spent a whole 5 euro to have a look around to kill some time waiting for the Coop to open. This was the best 5 euro other than a cold Birra Moretti on a hot day I have spent. I'm not normally into this sort of thing but found it... More
