Chianti Italy
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Chianti

The charming yet unusual beauty of Chianti is the result of a long history of human activity; the locals have been working on the land for centuries to make it what it is today. Especially famous for its wine, this area of Tuscany offers some truly unique landscapes. It combines simple natural beauty with the splendour of the elaborately-decorated houses which are dotted across the region. If you come to Chianti, you could stay in one of many 'agritourism' sites tucked away deep in the countryside, where you will be able to take in the fresh air and enjoy the organic food.
