Castles are always fun and I never tire of visiting them. Entry is part of the museum, and was a pleasant visit.

Visited Christiana in Chianti in October. What a lovely little Tuscan town. In the centre of it all is this castle with very unique architecture. It makes for great pictures from the piazza in front and from the surrounding countryside. I didn’t realize you could...More

While walking around the town, we stumbled upon Rocca di Castellina and it was so incredible to see! This area is perfect for a day trip from Florence. So many amazing areas to take photos of -- especially the little church!

We were drving through this place onward to Greve in Chianti and decided to stop by this place. It was a good deicision. Awesome view to the landscape from here. Visited a local vineyard and went to a cafe for re-freshement.
