Certainly walking in the uncontaminated Chianti or visit the ancient villages is a special experience for kids of all ages, but we can expect something more particular …
In Greve, unless you are a vegetarian ,you may be attracted by the stuffed boar that is waiting in front of the Butcher Falorni. It’s so interesting to see up close how this typical Chianti animal is then see the immensity of prosciuttos (hams) hanging inside
At the entrance of the village there is also a playground that offers the opportunity to let children play and parents relax a while. http://www.falorni.it
If we drive to Castellina, the specialty is the ice cream. All’Antica Delizia you can try many gelato flavours and calling ahead you can organize a little explanation for the children. Culture of homemade gelato was born in Italy and it is … saporitissima.Then take a stroll in an ancient medieval walkway. http://www.anticadelizia.it
But if you are interested in the Middle Ages, talk about that time with your children and drive to Castle Brolio
.Maybe only in my imagination but this is the typical castle with fairies and princesses. I still see the princess, in reality this is a family of Barons, but for children what’s the difference? ……. Well I see the Princess locked in the castle and the Knights defending her and controlling the enemy from the high walls …. And then, Mom and Dad can taste the wine.
To rest you can drive to Gaiole in Chianti or Radda in Chianti, where there is a great bar(coffee shop) where to have the very Italian cappuccino and a small playground with swings and slide.
A t the same time contemporary art culture and fun: an outdoor sculpture collection . Do not run and damage, but it’s so nice to walk into the structures of modern art, and live them and understand what they mean to the artist and to us . http://www.chiantisculpturepark.it/
