Castello Chianti is located around 15km south of Florence in the rolling Chianti hills, surrounded by landscapes of vineyards and olive groves so typical of this part of Tuscany.

Discover local restaurants in nearby villages within a 5 to 10-minute drive or head a little further towards other Tuscan gems in the Chianti countryside to truly experience the charm of this region. Look out for summer events taking place in the historic town of Impruneta (15km), visit one of the olive oil presses if staying in late autumn and perhaps purchase some of the terracotta that the town is famous for.

Visit the many iconic vineyards of this area, perhaps starting off in Greve in Chianti (18km) where a wonderful market takes place on a Saturday morning or it’s a fine place for lunch and a little shopping on other days of the week. Panzano (26km) is another enchanting place to explore with several atmospheric restaurants and café terraces as well as an outdoor market every Sunday morning.

Other trips include Castellina in Chianta and Radda, both around a 45-minute drive away, or venture west to Montespertoli (45km), a Tuscan hilltop village famed for its wine, truffles and olive oil. Further south is the gorgeous town of Siena (70km), ideal for an exceptional day out at one of Italy’s most famous destinations, whilst San Gimignano (60km) can be reached within an hour.

The castle can help organise wine and olive oil tasting tours as well as bike hire, a fantastic way to reach stunning villages and endless vineyards. Perhaps you may prefer to admire the glorious scenery on horse-back.

Not forgetting Florence, of course - you can catch a glimpse of Florence Cathedral’s dome from the castello’s panoramic terrace. Around 15km by car, it’s such a beautiful city to discover as you wander around its historic lanes filled with pretty terrace cafes, boutiques and vibrant restaurants. Set off early to soak up the ambience of the bustling markets, then stop off for a coffee in one of the famous squares. As evening approaches, come across one of the many bars offering aperitivi accompanied by delicious food, or simply enjoy a glass of wine overlooking the vintage carousel on Piazza della Repubblica.

Some of the great sights of Florence include Ponte Vecchio, the Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore, Il Duomo, the belltower and the Basilica of Santa Croce. If you have time, head slightly outside the city, perhaps via the historic Giardino di Boboli, and take in the incredible views from Piazzale Michelangelo.

Please note that Castello Chianti is actually located in the region of Tuscany but is very close to the Chianti border.

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Beyond the endless vineyards, Florence and the Chianti countryside have so much to appeal to families with children.

The castle can help organise bike hire for families who love cycling and tours on horse-back can also be arranged, both wonderful ways to admire the glorious scenery of Tuscany. There are also plenty of marked hiking trails across the Chianti hills and beyond.

Young historians may enjoy a trip to the pre-medieval set-up at Poggibonsi Archaeodrome, just under an hour away (check opening times in advance) or you can admire Etruscan remains in many local villages and towns scattered across this part of Tuscany – there is an archaeological museum in Castellina in Chianti (Museo Archeologico del Chianti Senese).

A day out in Florence is sure to appeal to every age! Ride on the vintage carousel at Piazza della Repubblica, explore the historic Boboli Gardens, pre-book tickets to visit one of the many museums and galleries, followed of course by a gelato on a pretty café terrace. The Palazzo Vecchio is known to be especially family-friendly and you can also arrange family tours of the Uffizi Gallery. Tired legs may also appreciate a trip on the open-top tourist bus that transports you across the city.
