Things to do on holiday in Castellina in Chianti, Italy

Castellina in Chianti is the atypical image of Italy’s scenic Tuscany region – historic buildings and churches, rolling green hills and countryside, and of course vineyards where all the tasty Chianti wines are produced! Far from being just a small rural ‘comune’, Castellina in Chianti actually has a number of interesting sights to see. Dating back hundreds of years, the township was first inhabited by Etruscans and Romans, though it took on most of its current character during the 14th and 15th centuries when it was fortified. Today you can still visit the large Rocca (castle) and its 14th century tower, plus the small Etruscan museum here. When the town was fortified underground passageways were also built, such as the Via delle Volte which you can visit.

The Church of San Salvatore is another popular attraction. This was constructed in the 15th century and features a fresco from that period of the Madonna with Child. Other picturesque churches can be found in the small villages surrounding the town, as well as evidence of Castellina in Chianti’s earlier history, such as the Etruscan tomb which dates back to the 6th century. Of course one of the big attractions with this region of Italy is the vineyards, where tours and wine tasting are popular.
