We took this road (SR 222) as a side trip while driving frm Bologna to Siena. We picked up SR 222 off of the Autostrada in Florence and took it all the way into Siena. It would be a fun road to drive in a...More

The road is definitely worth driving. Lots of wineries where you can stop and try the wine and lots of scenery. Few places to stop and enjoy the scenery however so when there is a pocket to stop in – do so since you might...More

I did this road in springtime and would have given it 1 star but I can imagine that in autumn it merits 5 stars. In May it is just a monotomous green of rolling hills much like you could see anywhere in Italy. The driving...More

We are amazed of this area. Just come back of a road trip. All this area is fantastic. Few people, forest road, oaks, pines, beech trees and, of course vinyards. There is a natural reserve, with an enormous virgin forest, unusual in Tuscani. We saw...More

Unfortunately I cannot recommend this road if you are not a real wine connoisseur. Before my trip I had read about this place like this: "The Via Chiantigiana is one of the most enjoyable motoring routes in Italy, one of the most instantly recognisable landscapes...More

Chianti.....drive leisurely along it's narrow winding roads, verdant green on either side. If not forests it's the rolling hills covered with vineyards or olive trees dotted with small habitations and the ubiquitous wineries. It's lovely countryside. Stop by small villages with their relaxing cafe's or...More

We opted for the country roads and drove slowly with the windows down, breathing in the wonderful smell of spring in Tuscany. I think if I could put Tuscany in a bottle it would smell like pinewood, lemongrass and gardenia.

I just returned from Tuscany and wanted to share what I learned driving in Chianti. It is quite simple, NEVER, NEVER drive the roads there on Sunday. The roads were full of bicycle clubs riding together and bike races were also taking place. I did...More
