A walk in the Chianti Classico heartland

  • A walk in the Chianti Classico heartland

    Put your best foot forward in the Chianti Classico heartland. This circular trail from Gaiole wanders through a landscape of vines, wild fruits and fig and cypress trees. It also passes by a church and a tower house both dating from the 10th century, as well as the castle at Meleto, fought for in the wars between Siena and Florence (groups can pre-arrange a guided tour). The medieval hamlet of Barbischio is also on the route, which winds its way through chestnut woods and follows a stream before returning to Gaiole. It’s an easy 12km trek, which should take about 3 hours and 15 minutes.
