Montefioralle

Chianti is world wide famous wine coming out from the region which is situated on the road in between Firenze and Siena. The locals call it Chianteggio, one of the most charming Italian area I have seen so far. There are dozens of small villages, always situated on the top of the hill, hard to decide which one is more beautiful. My favourite is Montefioralle, which belongs to the community of Greve.
Actually, I knew just a little of Chianti but had no clue about Montefioralle. This small and very charming village is situated on the top of the hill, right along the road, and since it was shone-upon the morning sun I just couldn't withstand not to stop here. In fact, Montefioralle is the most beautiful place I have seen in whole of Tuscany.

Panzano

Panzano is another little gem of Chianti, situated just a few kilomteres away from Montefioralle in diredtion to Siena. The local church, which dominates the whole hilltop and is visible from a far distance, convinced me to visit this small and charming village.

Small village nearby Montefioralle

The area of Chianti is full of beautiful and enchanting landscapes, so characteristic for the whole of Tuscany. Thickly woods are followed by vineyards or olive-grove and large fields in thousand colours. Hilltops are dominated by the castles or charming and congested villages. Here and there you can see a lot of lonely houses or hamlets which looks deserted under the summer heat.
