Thanks to the Chianti wine produced here, this is a destination really liked by many Vips that are enchanted by its tastes, landscapes and flavors, so they come back every year to try the local delicacies and the relaxing mild climate.
To discover the pure essence of this valley you have to see Castellina in Chianti, where we find the Archaeological Museum of Senese Chianti, inside the ancient Rocca, that keeps the historical finds of the region. Then, in Castelnuovo Berardenga you can admire the garden of Villa Chigi-Saracini with a lot of statues dedicated to the great Italian musicians; the others towns are Gaiola in Chianti and Radda in Chianti, where is based the Classic Chianti wine that has the Black Rooster brand.
We suggest to visit one of the handicraft shops and buy a souvenir sipping a glass of wine, of course!
