La Torre del Chianti

The Florentine and Vallombrosa mountains, the peaks of Pistoia, the Pisan territories, the Chianti hills, the Sienese villages and, when the sky is particularly clear, even the sea.
With a simple turn on yourself you can contemplate all this from the top of the Torre dell’Acqua, then called Torre del Chianti.

Ancient water tower called Torre del Chianti
The ancient piezometric tower, owned by the city, has a striking cylindrical shape and, from its 33 meters, dominates the surrounding landscape.
Rebuilt in its present form after World War II, it still retains its function of storing water, but has become above all a panoramic terrace from which it is possible to enjoy a breathtaking view of the Chianti hills.
From 15 November 2014, the Tower hosts the contemporary art work “BULK”, the result of the collaboration between the artist Patrizio Travagli and the group of architects WOKdesign (Angelo Basso, Leonardo Biagi and Marco Giachetti).
It is also home to temporary exhibitions and cultural events.
