While walking around the town, we stumbled upon Rocca di Castellina and it was so incredible to see! This area is perfect for a day trip from Florence. So many amazing areas to take photos of -- especially the little church!

We were drving through this place onward to Greve in Chianti and decided to stop by this place. It was a good deicision. Awesome view to the landscape from here. Visited a local vineyard and went to a cafe for re-freshement.
