Segment 2 - Tuscany


The next segment of the trip involved driving up from San Felice Circeo to Castellina in Chianti to stay at the Agriturismo Petriffita. We have stayed here many times and once again enjoyed our stay.

Castellina in Chianti is a beautiful old town, situated on a ridge between the valleys of the Arbia, Elsa and Pesa Rivers. The town dates back to Etruscan and Roman times. It became the seat of local government for the Chianti League along with Radda in Chianti and Gaiole in Chianti in the 13th and 14th C. There is still the underground passage of the old walls that you can walk through.

This was a great base for travels throughout Tuscany.
