More about Castel Monastero


by Francesco-C

This is the oldest building of my village, it was built in the XI century and adjusted several times during the following centuries. It is a romanic church with nice paints inside. Nowaday it hosts a lot of concerts (classic music) in summer and local exibition.
From this church you can enjoy a nice view over the near peat-moss.

Piazza Matteotti, Old Town Chianciano Terme

by hopang

Piazza Matteotti is located in the Old Town in Chianciano Terme between via Solferino and via Casini. It is the main square and one of the few popular squares in the Old Town in Chianciano Terme. The square is also one of the largest in the Old Town. It consists of two prominent architectural buildings, i.e. the Town Hall and Castello Manenti which is also known as Monastero or the Monastery. The Manenti Castle was built by Count Manenti in the 11th century.

In the middle of the square stands a lovely hexagonal shaped fountain constructed in the 18th century. It was made of marble. This unique fountain is a popular tourist attraction in the Old Town. The below telephone and fax numbers are those of the Tourist Information Office at Chianciano Terme.

Chianti Wine Tour

by wardguy

My wife and I will be in Siena next month. Our hotel offers a van tour of the Chianti wine area at an advertised price of 65 Euros each. If anyone has taken a similar tour I'd be interested in your opinion of it.

Never taken a tour but if that includes tastings and lunch, it's probably worth it. Unless you are comfortable driving around a foreign country and have a good map and know where you are going, the tour is probably wise.

There are some people here at VT who use tours and hopefully they will give you some advice on names of tour companies.

The area is gorgeous; the wineries are excellent and virtually any meal you get will be very good. It sounds like a fun way to spend a day and September is lovely in Tuscany.

the tour will be worth for the driving, because u don't have to stress for the streets and signs
but for the quality of wine/food you taste.. forget it.. it'll not be good..
i've lived in toscana since i was born, and you eat/drink what you pay for.. in this case... with 65 euros you pay the car and the guide.. wine will be poor quality
but yes, if u don't feel like renting a car and drive around by yourself, it'll be ok

remember that the real tuscan products are not where tourist masses go
ciao and welcome :)

That sounds like a lot of money to me, personally. When we drove through the Chianti region during our visit I wasn't particularly impressed. Lots of little forested hills, like the Ozarks but with grape vines.

If you are wanting a day out for some good wine, how about taking the bus to Montalcino? They have an enormous enoteca (wine shop) in an old castle keep right in the middle of town. You could sample some of the local Brunello, have a nice meal, grab a gelati and best of all do everything on your own time without being taken to some backroads taverna because the owner is in cahoots with the hotelier. Just my 2 cents!

Don't forget Siena has its own vast enoteca, literally hundreds of wines on the menu. Happy travels (and tippling)!

hello jayhawk
the best wine doesn't come from MontLCIno anymore... you tourists should top believing this.. because you are missing a lot somewhere else in Toscana :)

Travel Tips for Siena

Heaven's Gate

by ExGuyParis

The interior of Siena Cathedral, looking up inside the dome. You can see the striking black and white marble stripes which distinguish this Romanesque church. I don't think I have ever seen a dome quite as striking. You expect a bunch of angels to come winging down at any moment.

The cathedral is strikingly different-- awash with color from the marble mosaic floors, the black and white marble stripes, the stained glass windows, and the interior painting and gilding. There are superb sculptures; a rather erotic Mary Magdeline by Bernini, Saint Peter and Saint Paul (plus two other statues) by Michelangelo.

Also be sure to visit the Baptistry for an eye-popping experience. and I also recommend the Piccolomini Library (off the left aisle of the main church) with its "The Three Graces," a riot of color from frescoes and a collection of illuminated manuscripts.

Rival to Florence's Duomo

by rexvaughan

We felt this was the most beautiful cathedral we saw in Italy. It reminds one of Florence's Duomo with its facade of white marble with Sienese red and Prato green polychrome blocks. However much you are impressed with the exterior, the interior will knock your socks off! The columns and walls are horizontally striped in black and white marble, the floor is exquisitely decorated with inlaid marble squares and the ceiling is a vibrant deep blue with stars. As you are gaping at the interior, you are under the gaze of 172 popes whos heads peer down at you from the ceiling.
