The Tuscany region

Located in the heart of Italy, Tuscany is surely one of the most famous Italian landscapes. The essence of this beautiful region are its natural, artistic, and cultural heritage.

Bounded by the Ligurian and the Tyrrhenian Sea (two arms of Mediterranean), this region is divided into ten provinces, whose capitals are Arezzo, Florence, Grosseto, Livorno, Lucca, Massa-Carrara, Pisa, Pistoia, Prato and Siena. Florence is the capital city of the region itself.

Spring and fall are the best times to visit Tuscany, because the climate is mild. Bus-lines and trains connect the larger towns, but having a car would be a great advantage, and you would be easily able to enjoy the small towns and vineyards, which represent some of Tuscany’s strong points.

The “Chiantigiana road” is a must to see: it produces some of Italy’s finest wines. This is the colourful and legendary road of the “Chianti" region. The grape cultivation dates back to the Etruscan times. One of the biggest pleasures will be sipping different wines, at the wineries or at the wine bars scattered in the towns.

What about a drop in on “Mugello”? It is a countryside surrounded by oaks, chestnut trees and by the Apennines, This land of artists and painters have been source of inspiration in its farmhouses and colours. with kind people, authentic cooking, good wine, plus a great tradition in handicrafts.

Versilia is an area of 20 km sandy beaches located in the north of the region. The seaside with the colourful bathing areas is rich in bars and meeting places. Camaiore, Forte dei Marmi, Massarosa, Pietrasanta, Seravezza, Stazzema and Viareggio are the towns of this beautiful coast.

Gaiole in Chianti

Gaiole in Chianti lies among the rolling hills of the famous Chianti region. We do not have certain information about the topical toponym: it might derive indeed from the medieval word "gariola" - meaning "jay" - or from the proper noun "Carius", referring to a rural barn once there. The specification "Chianti" was added in 1911, referring to village's position into the homonym region.

Numerous archaeological findings (like the splendid necropolis datable between I and III century AD) testify that Gaiole in Chianti has Etruscan and Roman origins. However the village consolidated itself during the Middle Ages, expanding along the nearby torrent Massellone. Between XI and XIV centuries, Gaiole in Chianti - which was within the jurisdiction of the Ricasoli family – passed to the hands of the Republic of Florence, that realized a massive fortification in town.

In the XIII century the village grew up impressively in terms of economic power, so that it became part of the famous "terziere" belonging to the Chianti League, along with Radda and Castellina in Chianti.

Located at Florence's border with Siena, Gaiole in Chianti was fortified even further, becoming one of the most important Florentine ramparts. Because of the strategic position, the hamlet of Gaiole in Chianti was not spared from several Senese incursions which devastate the territory again and again until 1555, when the Republic of Siena fell apart and the city was annexed to the Grand Ducky of Tuscany.
