Things to do
Gaiole in Chianti
Situated on the road ss408, from Siena to Montevarchi.
Gaiole in Chianti owes its development to its position in the valley where an important market for the local populations was centered around the year 1000.
Its name likely comes from "gaggiolo" used to indicate a large forest.
After 1300 Gaiole became important not only as a market but as a tertiary city of the League of Chianti, Florence's administrative and political instrument.
Gaiole was not only an important commercial centre, but it was also important to the clergy, this is evident by the many parish churches and abbeys.
