The Chianti Area – Radda and Greve in Chianti.

The diverse and amazing panorama in Tuscany is distinguished with its diverse and scenic landscapes; perhaps the most famous being Chianti. Located in an area that encompasses Florence and Siena, Chianti is as varied in its scenery as it is in its wines. The many itineraries found through the soft rolling hills covered with rows and rows of grapes, quaint hamlets, low lying forests and picturesque accommodations situated in stone farmhouses, romantic bed and breakfasts and luxurious villas have inspired poets, artists, photographers and travelers for centuries.

Radda in Chianti

Radda in Chianti is a beautiful medieval town enclosed in large defensive walls. Located up on a hill between the valleys of Arbia and Pesa, it has ancient origins. Inhabited since the 9th century, Radda was officially mentioned in a document from 1002. Its stone facades adds to the medieval look characterized by narrow streets and tower buildings.
he picturesque panorama, the small town feel, the calendar rich with cultural events and the natural flavors of the land make Radda one destination that should always be part of an itinerary in Chianti.


Greve in Chianti

The world renowned vineyards of Chianti are visible even before you cross the local government line of Greve in Chianti but, it isn’t until you actually walk into the triangular shaped square, with its stone pavement, and inhale the small town atmosphere that you can really truly say you are having a Chianti experience. Looking at the tranquil atmosphere of this fairly busy little town, one would never guess that the town of Greve, and the headquarters of the local comune, had been caught in the crossfire of Florence and Siena for hundreds of years.
