Panzano, the Tuscan hilltop town in the middle of Chianti
Panzano in Chianti makes an ideal base for your holiday in Chianti. It is located exactly halfway between Florence and Sienna, with a comfortable bus connection to Florence (one hour). The altitude of Panzano ensures that it avoids excessive heat during the Tuscan summer. The entire surrounding territory consists of Chianti Classico vineyards, olive groves and forest. Wine tasting opportunities abound at the Tuscan wineries dotted throughout the countryside and in season the forests a full of porcini mushrooms.

The Chianti hills surrounding Panzano are the location of many beautiful and economical vacation rentals (Tuscan villas, Chianti agriturismi, farmhouse and village apartments and Chianti Bed & Breakfast accommodations) and there are two excellent hotels in Panzano, Hotel Villa Le Barone and Hotel Villa Sangiovese. The hotels have swimming pool, as do many of the vacation rentals.
Panzano itself is quite small with a good range of restaurants, an enoteca, a small supermarket (there’s a larger Coop supermarket 10 minutes away by car in Greve in Chianti), the famous Dario Cecchini butchers shop and other useful supply outlets.
Panzano is the location of a very good folkloric festival called the Festa della Stagion Buona that takes place on 25 April, Italy’s national holiday, and there is a wine festival in Panzano called Vino al Vino that is held on the third weekend in September and the preceding two days. These two feste count among the best small town festivals of Tuscany.
Nearby Panzano (within walking distance) there are two churches worth a visit by anyone interested in the architecture of Chianti. These are the Pieve di San Leolino and the Oratory of Saint Euphrosynus (Sant’Eufrosino). Several other aesthetically and historically interesting Chianti Romanesque Churches are within easy driving distance of Panzano.
