MORE INFO ABOUT AREA

The Chianti area in Tuscany (also called Chianti Hills or Chianti Mountains for the short 20 km mountain range) is one of the most famous in the world, halfway between the cities of Florence, Siena and Arezzo that marks the eastern border of the Chianti region with Valdarno and Val di Chiana. Greve in Chianti is home to the highest peak in the area (893 meters). The remaining area is mostly hilly and its towns and villages are part of the production map of the red wine Chianti Classico DOCG, (pronunced asˈkjanti). Its unique taste is the result of its composition: 80% of Sangiovese grapes, 15% of Canaiolo and 15% of Malvasia bianca. Within the Chianti DOCG there are eight sub-zones that are allowed to use this wine label. The borders of the Chianti region are not clearly defined: it extends between the provinces of Florence and Siena further expanding to the East to Valdarno and to the West to Val d'Elsa. With reference to the area of Chianti one can find the distinction between Florentine Chianti and Sienese Chianti, bearing the names of the closest major cities.

HOW TO REACH AREA

It is possible to reach the Chianti area by car, train or bus but the best way to enjoy the countryside and visit little towns and villages is drive through it by car or motorbike. From Florence or Siena one can choose among 3 roads to follow: the superstrada SR222, called  la Chiantigiana that passes through the wonderful Chianti area and typical countryside villages (one has to pay attention on serpentine roads), the highway Firenze-Siena (take the exit Poggibonsi Nord for the Chianti Classico area). This road allows to reach Siena from Florence in less than one hour (the fastest and toll-free ride but without views of the landscape). The last option is to take SR2 - Cassia road. It is the old Roman road that passes through Poggibonsi village and Monteriggioni castle. It is also possible to reach the area from Florence by bus. There are buses leaving every hour from the central bus station only 100 m far from Florence Santa Maria Novella railway. With the bus SITA 365 is possible to get to Greve. SITA tickets are sold in the bus station as well as in bars and tobacco's shops (also on board of the bus with a small extra charge). It is also possible to reach Chianti by train. You have to get off at Poggibonsi or Castellina stations. It is necessary to change trains in Empoli and proceed towards Siena (trains departing every 30 minutes). Poggibonsi station is the best solution to reach San Gimignano and other places near Siena. Castellina in Chianti is right in the heart of Chianti and is an ideal starting point to start discovering the area.
