The Chianti region is one of the most beautiful hilly areas in Tuscany (and perhaps Italy), famous worldwide for the production of Chianti wine. Vineyards, olive groves, fortified villages, castles and splendid landscapes mark this land stretching between Florence and Siena. Chianti is connected to Florence via the SS222, also known as the Chiantigiana, an easily accessible road that crosses this part of Tuscany. Almost everything in the area deserves a visit: Greve in Chianti is considered the gateway to the Chianti region, settled by the Etruscans and birthplace of the great navigator Giovanni da Verrazano. Piazza Matteotti, also called the Mercatale, is the city's main attraction, as well as the Church of Santa Croce. For you wine lovers out there, don't miss the area's Wine Museum. A short detour from the Chiantigiana road takes you to Montefioralle, an ancient medieval castle among the oldest in Chianti still vaunting its original appearance. Back on the main road you'll find Panzano in Chianti, a spot where you can taste one of the most delicious T-bone steaks in the world and enjoy stunning panoramic views.
