GAIOLE IN CHIANTI
BOOK YOUR STAY AT AGRITURISMO LE TRAPPOLINE
Gaiole in Chianti, located on the western flank of the Montegrosso, along the river Massellone, on the road that leads from Siena to the Arezzo area, in Montevarchi, Gaiole has always played an important role as a commercial focal point for the villages and castles of the surrounding hills.
At the center of this delightful town is the ancient city center where you can admire the beautiful temple in Romanesque style. But the main attraction of Gaiole is represented by the wineries and their surrounding areas, such as castles and ancient churches. The Castle of Brolio, the Pieve di Spaltenna, the Castle of Vertine and Badia a Coltibuono, are all very nice places to visit. In the month of October will take place in Gaiole the famous “L’Eroica“, the historic cycling initiative, which has become a worldwide event: on that occasion, the first Sunday of October, the town offers many side events, such as exhibitions, theater performances, tours around the area, local markets.
The quality of life in Gaiole is excellent, so much so that the American magazine “Forbes” has defined the city as the most idyllic place to live in Europe.
