sant appiano

An observation point overlooking the territory. A way to re-interpret an unwieldy structure: this is the panoramic point Chianti Tower.

torre del chiantiYou will be able to see, just by turning around, the Florentine hills and Vallombrosa, mountains of Pistoia, Pisa’s territory, the Chianti landscape, Siena’s hamlets and, whenever the sky is limpid, even the see.
This old surge tank tower, owned by the Comune , has a suggestive cylindrical form and from its 33 meters towers above the surroundings.
It was reconstructed after the Second World War and it still has its function as a storage water reservoir, but it has become a panoramic terrace where you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Chianti hills.
