Castellina in Chianti, located in the heart of the Chianti region, as the name suggests, is a nice but small town in Tuscany, very famous for its historical past during which the place was lived by the Etruscans.

Situated in a strategic position, halfway between Val d’Elsa, Val di Pesa and the Arbia valley, Castellina hosts numerous old monuments and historical finds, remembering not only the notable importance of the Etruscan civilisation, but also the medieval time, in which the ancient walls around the town were built. Nowadays, unfortunately, they can’t be seen anymore, since they are almost completely demolished, apart from a small section underground.
