Day trip from Florence need helps with small towns

Hello we are driving from Florence on May 20th. We will stop in Greve, Radda and I would like to visit one more Small town.

San Gimignano is really worth a visit if you haven't been.

Castellina, Rada and Greve can be done together... they are very small villages. San Gimignano is wonderful but much larger and requires more time. Oh, and Panzano in Chianti is beautiful (again very small)

I like Castellina in Chianti...a nice addition to Greve and Radda. We spent a day there last October and then I spent 2 days there again last month. Every time we stay in this area, I always make a trip to Castellina. There are some good restaurants, nice shops, interesting tunnel that surrounds the town, a nice enoteca next to a good gelateria. Just a lovely town to wander.

In addition to the excellent suggestions above, also have a look at Volpaia. They have a wonderful restaurant for lunch there call Bar Ucci.

The town is lovely and will add to the ambience of the other towns which you are visiting.

Thank you all! I’m going to Volpaia I already made a

Rsvp at the winery. Was thinking about Panzano and try lunch at Uci bar. This will give neurons to be relax and be back by 7:30 to Florence correct?

If you don't get to Fiesole when you are in Florence it's worth a ride up there for the panoramic views of Florence. There is a bus that runs up to it.
