San Donato in Poggio

San Donato in Poggio is one of those little Tuscan hilltop towns that has never attracted the attention it deserves. The town itself retains some of its mediaeval walls, including two gates, and much of its original layout.

The town was strategically important and a number of treaties between Florence and Sienna were signed here. Nowadays, San Donato in Poggio is a tranquil village surrounded by the beautiful Chianti countryside and is well worth a visit if you're in the area. Accommodation within San Donato in Poggio is provided by the magnificent Palazzo Malaspina and nearby is the extremely photogenic Badia a Passignano.
