The underground historical road is pretty unique, stroll along it to appreciate the medieval construction techniques, but don't expect much else. When we were there in April the tunnel was extremely quiet, only 3 premises were open; a bag shop, a wine shop and a...More

The walk through Via delle Volte was the most unique stroll in the countryside. The feeling of history was so strong and the views through the city walls were incredible. The little ships built into the wall were sweet and while we didn’t have a...More

the underground historical road is unique, it runs under the old buildings of the village and you can cross it one side to the other like in the middle age!

There is a comforting sense about being in this smaller town in the Chianti region...fine shops and fewer tourists plus the benefit of the interesting tunnel running parallel to the main street. Feel free to visit and see all of the town and shop with...More
