Passignano

Badia a Passignano

In the Val di Pesa, in the hills between Siena and Florence lies the small village of Badia a Passignano, currently known for the good wine produced there but linked to the Abbey, founded in 1049 by San Giovanni Gualberto, founder of the Vallombrosano order. The monastic complex is easily recognizable as it is still unchanged: a majestic monastic complex, the houses perched around it make it a postcard landscape in the splendid Tuscan hills. Noteworthy are the religious buildings of the village, including the Church of San Michele Arcangelo, a tower house of the thirteenth century and the parish church of San Biagio, decorated with frescoes of the fifteenth century.

Greve in Chianti

Since the Middle Ages the history of Greve is linked to its main square that has always exercised its function as a market. The village was a mere dependence of the castle of Montefioralle but thanks to its location, it is located in the point where they met the roads connecting the Valdarno, the Val di Greve and the road that from Florence through the Chianti Hills led in the Sienese area , could become the main market in the area. The square with the characteristic shape of an elongated triangle is for the most part surrounded by arcades and in the middle is the statue of Giovanni da Verrazzano.

Tavarnelle

Tavarnelle in Val di Pesa

Its economy is based on agriculture and viticulture (since 1932 the territory is included in the Chianti area, partly in the Classic sub-zone and partially in the Colli Fiorentini sub-zone). In the hamlet of Sambuca Val di Pesa there is a large industrial area. His name, Tabernulae, clearly indicates a resting place on the Via Cassia that from Florence went to Rome. In fact Tavarnelle preserves the urban structure of a road village. His visit is however pleasant as the medieval part is well preserved and the narrow streets sometimes open up into wide openings that have become colorful little squares.
