Around Siena

Ancient villages and sublime wines

Just like our world-famous wines, Chianti is a full-bodied land, rich in art and history. Small towns dot the green landscape like jewels and the superb food and wine offer you a journey in taste. Let the Hotel Le Fontanelle be your gateway to this world of marvels.


A visit to the city of the Palio is a must. Stand in the amazing Piazza del Campo, in the shadow of the Palazzo Pubblico and the Torre del Mangia. Stop at the Civic Museum and cathedral, and wander the streets at leisure, exploring the cafes and shops with wonderful jewelry, furs, books, and more. It’s easy to get to Siena with our free shuttle service.


Castelnuovo Berardegna is one of several municipal areas in this glorious part of Tuscany, and from here it’s easy to reach the towns of Panzano, Castellina, Greve, Radda and other parts of Chianti. The beauty of the landscape never fails to impress, marked by vineyards and medieval villages. Seeing as this is the land of excellent wines, why not join in a tasting or visit to a historic local cellars?

San Gimignano

One of the most beautiful of Italy‘s ancient towns, this gem is famous for its medieval towers and breathtaking views. Visit the Museum of Torture, the Spezieria di Santa Fina, and pick up some locally-grown saffron.


Its ancient city walls still intact, Volterra retains all the charms of its Etruscan origins. Explore the acropolis, the Roman theatre and medieval churches, and don’t forget to stop at one of Volterra’s many craft shops for some locally-made alabaster.

Val d'Orcia

A few miles from Chianti, a different, other-worldly landscape opens before you. This is the valley of the Orcia river, the Val d’Orcia. Explore its unique villages, like the spa town of Bagno Vignoni, charming Pienza with its special cheeses, and the lovely San Quirico, whose cypress-lined roads are a world-famous symbol of the beauty and mystery of Tuscany.


The main attraction in this splendid city is the famous cycle of paintings by Piero della Francesca in the cathedral. Try to also time your visit to coincide with the antique market, on the first weekend of every month. You might pick up some real finds: furniture, household furnishings, jewels, and clothing, both antique and modern.


This 14th-century fortified town is home to one of the world’s finest wines, Brunello di Montalcino. After visiting its charming steep streets and spectacular views, stop at the abbey of Sant’Antimo, one of the finest examples of Romanesque architecture in Italy.
