If Tuscany is many people’s favourite region of Italy, Chianti is, arguably, the region’s top spot. The heart of Chianti runs from the glories of Florence in the north to the charm of medieval-walled Siena in the south. However, the region's vineyards are quite widespread so when looking for wine hotels in Chianti you can consider places as far apart as Pisa in the west and Arezzo in the east.
