The trip moves on to Greve in Chianti with a stop in the historic square flanked by open galleries where you can wander around the shops selling typical products of the Chianti area.

In the evening, we will reach San Donato in Poggio, an ancient settlement in a fortified castle dating back to the eleventh century, which maintains part of its walls and a stunning Romanesque parish church.
