Chianni is a lovely town in Tuscany with a few nice shops, good coffee bar, a great new bistro and a lovely hotel with small spa. It is just 40 mins from Pisa airport. The coastal cities of Castiglioncello and Cecina on the coast, the golf courses of Pisa and Castelfalfi, and the historic towns of Volterra and San Gimignano are all close by, and each make a wonderful day out. The town is located in Valdera in Central Tuscany between Pisa and Florence. This colourful landscape of rolling hills is dotted with medieval villages, castles and lanes flanked with tall dark green cypress trees, all of which epitomizes the Tuscan landscape. Chianni is a vibrant little place and there are many activities on offer: cooking classes, painting classes, italian language classes, tasting of wine, oil and other typical products, hill walking, Vespa tours on the hill roads, guided tours to the historical localities in the area, golf and much more. The nearby città d’arte (cities of art) include Volterra, San Gimignano, Palaia and Florence, each offering splendid art and architecture to admire. In Lajatico, Andrea Bocelli, the famous tenor, was born and it is in the heart of Valdera that his Teatro del Silenzio draws some of the biggest names in opera, when he hosts a summer festival each year in July. The spa town of Casciana Terme, also in the area, has thermal waters and spa with indoor and outdoor pools which are open to visit and enjoy. It is a pretty town with piazzas and coffee shops, just perfect to watch the world go by. A perfect base in Tuscany.
