Siena: Siena is a city in Tuscany, Italy. It is a beautiful walled city famous for the Palio, a horse race in the main square. It is the capital of the province of Siena. The historic centre of Siena has been declared by UNESCO a World Heritage Site.
The Castellina in Chianti area
Castellina in Chianti is a small town nestled at the top of a rolling green hill that separates the Pesa and Staggia rivers. Castellina in Chianti has historic and noble origins. In the 13th century it was built on a high ridge, probably over Roman ruins.
The name Castellina in Chianti dei Trebbiesi, in honour of a nearby noble family, is tied to the civil history of Florence and the religious history of Fiesole.
It was part of the Chianti League and given its position near the border with Siena it was of great strategic importance. It has a 14th- 15th century character with a number of religious structures, including the parocchial church of San Salvatore.
The fortress and observation deck date back to medieval times as does the Via delle Volte, a road used originally for military purposes, from which there is a unique view of Chianti. You can visit several Etruscan tombs and it is believed that the area around Castellina in Chianti was full of numerous settlements of this population which, even today,is considered quite mysterious.
Today, Castellina's principle activity is, besides tourism, the production of wine and several important wine producers are located here.
There is an excellent ice cream shop in Castellina. The antica gelateria is famous in the whole of the Chianti for its fresh and delicious ice creams. It is in a beautiful room in an old building, while you eat your ice cream you can admire the high vaulted ceilings. The ice cream is all home-made and presented with elegance.
