Marciano della Chiana – video

29 May 2015

Beautiful video of Marciano Della Chiana.

The majestic tower stands tall against the clear blue sky, visible from all sides, pointing elegantly and powerfully upwards.
It’s worth visiting Marciano just to see this extraordinarily well conserved tower .
The houses and small gardens fan out below the tower and together with the little square with its well, the beautiful city gate with its clock tower, on which one can see the Medici coat of arms, form a small hamlet which exactly reproduces the topography of the castle over which Sienese and Florentines, Perugini and Aretini fought from Medieval times onwards.
Nowadays this charming, friendly village with its small shops welcomes visitors offering genuine products from the surrounding countryside and its unbeatable Chianina beef.
