Castagneto Carducci sits on the top of the hill, dominated by the Castello dei Conti della Gherardesca which, along with the church of San Lorenzo, forms the original center of the village. Visitors find themselves immersed in a magical atmosphere strolling through streets, alleys and squares. From the central Piazza del Popolo, look out onto the Belvedere Terrace, where a breathtaking panorama awaits you.
At the foot of Castagneto Carducci, you can find San Guido that marks the beginning of the famous Viale dei Cipressi made known by the words of the poet Carducci and which leads to Bolgheri. This romantic avenue is considered a national monument, together with the cemetery where the poet's grandmother, Nonna Lucia, is buried. The timeless Bolgheri Castle is particularly noteworthy.
