DRIVING THE FAMOUS WINE REGION CHIANTI IN TUSCANY ITALY
Chianti is characterized by it’s medieval towns and picturesque rolling hills covered in forests, vineyards and olive groves, making it one of the most beautiful regions in Italy.
Although driving in Italy can at times be quite hair raising, I found driving through the Tuscan countryside to be relaxing.
The village seems to have remained as it has always been, it’s main piazza surrounded by tiny shops and cafes, with it’s beautiful church dominating one end.
Castellina in Chianti is dominated by it’s amazing 15th century fortress in the center of town.
On our way back from Siena in the warmth of the late afternoon, I took a different route through Radda in Chianti, another beautiful looking village.
If you’re going to Tuscany, I highly recommend hiring a car and exploring the countryside. Chianti is truly a beautiful place.
