Vertine (Italy). I’m writing from a very small place, it’s name is Vertine and it’s between Florence and Siena, in the heart of Chianti close to Radda and Gaiole. Driving from Florence to Siena is one of the most beautiful experience you can have in Italy: the hilly country – named “Chiantishire” because of its popularity among British people – is full vineyards and cypress trees, a wonderful location for landscape photography.
Castello di Vertine (Italy). Hidden among the typical hills of Tuscany, this little gem – Castello di Vertine – hosts its visitors with lovely narrow streets, a nice bar & restaurant, an ancient church and its original medieval walls. It’s easy to reach Castello di Vertine: it’s close to Radda in Chianti, between this one and Gaiole in Chianti. All around, vineyards and famous farms producing the excellent Chianti wine.
