We suggest arriving in Montefioralle via the road that goes from Greve in Chianti, but to fully appreciate the surrounding countryside, we invite you to take on the way back, the road that leads to Mercatale Val di Pesa, so you can venture out on white roads that lead you to discover corners of unquestionable beauty. Vineyards, olive groves, endless expanses of green on which seem to gently rest the scattered farms in the area, each with its own form, features, and secret beauty. The yellow ocher walls brightened by the sun, the stone facades, roofs dipped in red stripes which stand out on farms in the distance, the lush hills.
Here you can enjoy the excellent fruit of the vine, the Chianti Classico, and taste the flavors of traditional dishes of the restaurants in the area. In Montefioralle you can sample the variety of cured pork salames and enjoy the famous Florentine steak, served with classic white beans or a fresh salad with local greens. And don't forget dessert: the sweet cantuccini are a Florentine tradition accompanied by (strictly local!) Vinsanto.
Finally, for those lucky enough to visit Montefioralle in March, do not miss a stop at the Festa di Fritelle. For the feast day of St. Joseph, in the square opposite the access to the historical center of the village, you can sample these excellent fritters made by local housewives. Made from simple ingredients - rice boiled in milk, eggs and sugar – they are fried at the festival in a giant pan of two meters in diameter, and are eater accompanied by Vinsanto or a glass of Chianti Classico. Montefioralle is one of the most beautiful towns in Italy, and has become a popular destination not only for the beauty of the town but also for it traditions, people and history which make it unique in the world.
