From here a beautiful road leads into Chianti area: Badia Coltibuono, Gaiole, Radda, Castellina, Greve and Siena.

This is a land where, more than any other place, tradition and daily life exist side by side in perfect harmony. Montevarchi, situated in the midst of what is known as unspoiled “wine country” - with its vineyards, olive trees, castles, medieval hilltop villages and churches - is one of the more lively towns south of Florence.

The history of Montevarchi dates back to circa 986, when pilgrims and travelers stopped here on their way to and from Rome.

Today the area is famous for its contribution to the international fashion industry and boasts the location of prestigious fashion outlets like Prada and "The Mall"
