Castellina auf Deutsch

Castellina in Chianti is situated on a ridge along the Chiantigiana highway between Florence and Siena, at the turn-off for Poggibonsi. Castellina has an attractive old town centre marred by a grotesque formation of industrial silos and an abandoned warehouse, the latter scheduled to be re-developed or demolished at some future time. There is an intriguing covered road inside the town wall and Etruscan tombs in the vicinity. A good place to stop for lunch.
