Great views in a beautiful town!

Chianti is an amazing region and it is a must visit. The views are breathtaking, the architecture of the small towns/villages is lively, the food and wine is perfect.

For €5 you can visit both the museum and climb the tower at this site. The museum has some interesting artefacts from the Etruscan era, as well as some much older pottery fragments. The tower is more interesting as you get some excellent views from the top of the surrounding countryside. It's not too strenuous a climb, and shouldn't be... More

This is a charming wine proud town with interesting shops, a lovely church, castle with high tower including a most interesting Etruscan Museum in a single complex. There's a modern elevator for those with particular needs not to have to miss this little treasure, enclosed in most interesting architectural appointments with relics from as far back as at least seven...

If in Florence and/or Siena this is one of four Chianti Classico towns to visit, all can be completed in one day. Castellina is the first to be visited, there is a small piazza with Rocca which now acts as the town hall a underground passageway called the Via delle Volte leads into the center of town.

A beautiful building where your marriage can be hosted without feeling that you are in a town hall. The structure inside is really beautiful.

Small castle, now a post office. Nice restaurant on location. 30 mins is enough to go around. What you see is what you get. Nothing really inside it. Castellina town though is really pretty.

Small town, but nice. About 15 minutes from Panzano. Parking lot was easy to find. 2 euros for 2 hours. Went through the Via delle Volte tunnel that you can walk through. Has a couple of stores and gelato, which was good. Walked in the church of San Salvatore. We ate lunch at Pizzeria IL Fondaccio. Had pizza, which was... More

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
