ltinerary in the heart of Chianti, land of vineyards and medieval viflages. After visiting the village of etruscan origin of of San Gusmè, we leave the east gate of the walls to enter a splendid countryside made up of vineyards and views. We continue the dirt road up to the cemetery and take a downhill path starting us to make a small ford on the Ombrone river, the second longest river in Tuscany which at this point is more or less a stream. We go up a dirt road turning left and we reach an intersection with another road: we turn right and continue. Continuing we find ourselves at a round of cypresses with an obelisk in the center: from there begins a long cypress-lined avenue that leads us first to a chapel and then continuing along the vineyards to Villa Arceno, a beautiful eighteenth-century villa. We go back to the chapel and turn left onta another dirt road that runs alongside the vineyards, up to a farmhouse: here we take a path that has olive trees on the right and the woods on the left. The path then plunges into the olive trees and after having crossed the Ombrone again goes up a dirt road near a farmhouse, we are here immersed in the vineyards and we have a fabulous view of Chianti. We turn right and reach San Gusmè.
