The amazing city of Siena is 30 minutes drive approximately from Gaiole. It hosts The Palio horse race in the Piazza del Campo twice a year in July and August, see link http://www.ilpalio.org/palioenglish.htm. For further information on Siena and things to do there we suggest you check out the following link: http://www.aboutsiena.com/index.html

The amazing city of Florence (Firenze) is about a 1 hour drive approximately from Gaiole. It has been said that Florence has been unfairly overblessed with art, culture and history. It was the Cradle of the Renaissance and home of the likes of Niccolo Machiavelli, Michalangelo and the Medici family. The Palazzo degli Uffizi, the Ponte Vecchio and Piazza del Duomo are amongst a few of the city's amazing sites. Firenze is truly an amazing city.

Siena and Florence would be “must sees” on any visit to the area and there is a saying which goes as follows “Siena by day, Florence by night”.

Gaiole in Chianti

Most of the wineries and olive farms sell their produce direct to the public and very often provide tours and free wine tasting.Within a few minutes walk of the apartment there is Castello di Spaltenna, see link http://www.spaltenna.it/english/home.html ,a converted monastery which is now 5 star hotel, the ideal place for a treat lunch or evening meal.

"Peaceful taste of Tuscany!!!!"

Stayed here for a lovely, idyllic, December week. Amazing apartment with all home comforts. Loved walking through the village, stopping for pizza and fine wines :-) The views over the hills and vineyards are incredibly inspiring and a joy to wake up to! Day trip to Siena is a must! Great place to stay, will most definitely be back! Thanks!
