Capanna di Porcellina is located in the center of Chianti and is also in the center of Tuscany , in short, an excellent starting point for exploring all the Tuscan villages and towns.
During your stay you can visit the three municipalities of the historic Chianti Classico marked by the symbol of the Black Rooster: Gaiole in Chianti (which is also the town of L'Eroica, the vintage bike event), Radda in Chianti and Castellina in Chianti and taste a good glass of Chianti.
If you want to savor the smell of Chianti you can take a walk towards the Castello di Cacchiano, then towards the Castello di Brolio of Baron Bettino Ricasoli and continue to "Poternovi" and "Il Leccione" where the film "I dance alone" was filmed and return via the white road of Lucignano (about 12 km away).
We also recommend a visit to some small Chianti village in the surroundings, for example: Castagnoli, Castelnuovo Berardenga, Greve in Chianti, Panzano, Rietine, San Gusmè, Vertine, Villa a Sesta, Volpaia. And also a visit to the Chianti Sculpture Park with 17 hectares of wood and works from all over the world.
You cannot miss a visit to the beautiful Siena , the city of the Palio which is about twenty minutes away by car, where you can visit the Piazza del Campo and its imposing Torre del Mangia, the Cathedral of Siena and the museum Santa Maria della Scala , the house of Santa Caterina .
About 1 hour by car you can visit Florence, Arezzo, San Gimignano , Volterra, Monteriggioni , Pienza , Montepulciano , Montalcino , Lucca, Pisa, Assisi, Perugia and the Tuscan sea.
We also recommend you to visit the Crete Senesi and the Val d’Orcia with breathtaking views and also to relax at the Terme di Rapolano , or to the natural thermal pools of Bagni San Filippo or those of Bagno Vignoni .
