Detailed description: SS 222 is the road that runs longitudinally throughout the Chianti area. As soon left the center of Grassina breathtaking scenery will be presented to your eyes. Gentle slopes shaped by the time and the human labor will give you in fact glimpses of an unique countryside.
Here there are many small villages where you can spend time in peace and tranquility. Monteriggioni, Greve, Montefioralle....are just some of these.
Monteriggioni is a typical example of a medieval fortress. It was built by the Sienese to counteract the incursions of Florence, still retains its fourteen watching towers along the wall, and is now home of no more than fifty people.
Greve is considered the capital of the Chianti region just because it is the village that is more developed. At the center of the new buildings, built according to the rules in force, so that they do not conflict with the old ones, there is the town square. This is completely surrounded by arches and typical shops and in the middle of it stands the statue of the discoverer of New York Bay, Giovanni da Verrazzano, who was born and raised just a few kilometers from Greve.
Montefioralle is then the small village above Greve where a street entirely paved with cobblestones goes along the entire perimeter of it, which has instead been the birthplace of Amerigo Vespucci, the one who named America with his own name.   
Driving all on the SS 222 is reached Siena, a beautiful city full of charm and therefore also to be discovered, then return to Florence along the new road, so always exploring a different part of the Chianti area.
Arrived at the end of the day it may happen that your heart is retained by the enchantment that this precious part of Tuscany has given to you, in the event that this occurs will then be taken as a good reason to plan a your welcome return!
