Castelnuovo Berardenga is a town located about 20 kms from Siena, to which is then well connected. Its territory officially belongs to the Chianti area (to be more precise, is part of both the Colli senesi and Chianti Classico zones), so there are plenty of wine cellars and wine estates to visit if you’re interested in a wine-and-food tour. Besides Chianti wines, in fact, you’ll find lots of places for tasting typical local products such as Tuscan salumi and cheese.
For all lovers of excursions amidst nature, there’s a wonderful open-air museum in Castelnuovo, a 13 hectare park where you may walk among sculptures, realized by artists coming from all over the world, Parco Sculture del Chianti: impressive!
