Visiting Panzano & Smaller Towns


New member
Returning to Tuscana this September and staying in Greve-in-Chianti(Can't miss Chianti Classico Expo),for four nights. We are not visiting the larger towns/cities(Siena, Florence San Gimignano, etc) on this visit. Have never been to Panzano & since it is so close to Greve we want to visit. Radda-in Chianti & Vopaia are already on our to do list.

How much time would you suggest to allocate to properly sight see in Panzano?

Also, we were considering visits to Monteriggione, Castenuovo Berardenga & Poggibonsi. Any thought as to whether they are all desirable to visit? Would you suggest not to bother visiting any?

Thanks for all responses.

I would suggest all of them! And to be honest, all you need to dedicate to each is about 2 hours each, some are smaller, some are a bit bigger or with something more to explore and discover. Pggibonsi is off everyone's list, but it has a neat historical center and an archeological park:
