Shop Hours

We will be arriving in Castellina at 3:00 p.m. on a Monday. Will the shops on the main street be open for business at that time?

Thank you for your reply

Yes, by 3:30 when you are ready to ramble.

A lovely town.

In summer you'll find some of the shops aimed at tourists open in the afternoon but not everything. Generally speaking, in summer, expect stores to re-open after the midday break anywhere between 5 - 5.30.

We will arrive in Chianti the afternoon of 10/2. Should I expect nothing for shopping to be open until at least 4:00 p.m.?

I must defer to Lastraniera, she has more immediate knowledge than I.

Not necessarily in Castellina itself but in the villages generally in the Province of Siena, with the exception of the enoteche, some ceramics shops, etc ie shops aimed at tourists all other stores close for a long lunch break from around 1 pm until 4 pm in winter (Nov - March) and 5 in summer. It can be very irritating if, for example, you are cooking and realise you've run out of something!
