Sightseeing - Chianti, Mugello, Fiesole


The International Car Racing Mugello - Lago di Bilancino - Golf Club “Poggio dei Medici”

The Mugello area is located in one of the most particular mountainous area of Tuscany and counts several sport plants of International importance, such as the International Car Racing Track of the Mugello, the Lake Bilancino, which hosts important sailing events and the 18-holes Golf Club "Poggio dei Medici", which also host the Ladies European Tours.

The mountainous Mugello area extends to the north and east of Florence, and is a scenic area, covered in dense forest criss-crossed with walking paths and gurgling streams. The Mugello has some of Tuscany's prettiest villages and as home of the Medici's still has many Medicean villas.

Chianti Rufina Wine

The Mugello Rufina area is one of Tuscany's lesser known wine producing areas of the Chianti and the Strada del Vino makes for a pleasant trip along the Sieve river visiting the cantine or wine producing outlets where you can sample and buy Chianti bottled wine at reasonable prices. The small town of Rufina is home to the Museo della Vita e del Vino della Val di Sieve (Museum of grape vines & wine of the Sieve Valley).

Fiesole Estruscan Village

Fiesole is a delightful village half way between the Paggeria and Florence. Once home to the Etruscans Fiesole predates Florence in terms of human settlement. Today all that is left of the Etruscans is the Archeological Park that every summer hosts the arts festival Estate Fiesolana, held in the Teatro which dates to the 1st century BC.
