Green hills, vineyards and olive groves, small villages surrounded by high medieval walls, tight streets, castles and fortresses, and of course the famous red wines: that’s what you can find in Chianti.
The viability in Chianti is excellent today and the roads do not invite you to speed up but to enjoy the landscapes in a succession of ups and downs.

Perhaps not everyone knows that one of the first protagonists of the cinema to mention Chianti was … James Bond! In the movie “From Russia with Love” (1963) a spy pretends to be an English gentleman ordering a glass of Chianti together with a fish dish. Bond (played by Sean Connery) draws the gun and threatens the man, explaining that no gentleman would ever order a Chianti with fish!
The tours of romeanditaly group will stop in some panoramic points, from where it will be possible to take pictures that will remain indelible and unique images in your memories!
In the history of the Chianti region there is a legend which tells how “Siena” and “Florence” competed for the dominance of the region so, to solve the question regarding the borders of the region, was declared a speed race between two knights: one had to start from Florence and the other from Siena, then the meeting place would become the border of both cities. It was a speed race so the first one who woke up at the rooster’s crow would have the advantage over the other. The Florentine, in order to win the race and win most of the territory, fasted the rooster, which, exhausted by hunger, sang first, waking the knight before time. He left first, meeting the adversary in the territory of Castellina and there the border was established, later called Croce Fiorentina, near Siena. From here the famous symbol of the Black Rooster of Chianti.
During the tours of romeanditaly group you can also take part to wine tasting experiences with the visit of vineyard and cellar with an explanation by expert sommeliers accompanied by local foods.
