Take your luggage and jump on a local bus or book a private transfer to Greve in Chianti, a rustic market village and the capital of this renowned wine-producing region. Check in at your hotel, just briefly, and head over to Le Cantine di Greve where you can sample over 50 different Chianti wines. Take advantage of the remaining daylight hours and amble through gorgeous scenery on your choice of two routes.
Walk A: Greve in Chianti loop via Uzzano
Hike north from Greve’s pretty main square and meld with the picture-perfect Chianti Classico landscape. Stroll past Villa Calcinaia through seemingly endless vineyards of local ‘aziende agricole’, the famous farms where prestigious Chianti wines are produced.
Walk B: Greve loop via Montefioralle
Explore wonderful woodlands with wild vegetation, elegant villas, verdant vineyards and olive groves. Trundle along past age-old abandoned farms, mysterious ruins and stately manors as you make your artistic way to the panoramic hamlet of Montefioralle.
