Florence Off The Beaten Path: 310 reviews and 383 photos
Located as close as only 30kms south of Florence is the magical Chianti region of Tuscany. This famous region is home to a large chunk of Tuscany's wine production, and its stunning countryside is easily accessible from Florence as a day trip (particularly if you have a car).
The best way to explore Chianti is to make a start driving along the SS222, stopping at places like Castellina & Greve along the way. Then, time permitting, take a drive along some of the lesser roads and explore villages like Lamole and Montefioralle. Most towns/villages will offer the chance for wine tasting and purchasing at one of their many wine shops.
Make sure you head to some secluded restaurant for lunch, taste some fresh local cuisine and sample a glass or two of Chianti Classico (not too much if you are the driver please!)
