Bolgheri

A TOWN OF TIMELESS CHARM ON THE ETRUSCAN COAST

 

 

Bolgheri was immortalized by Giosuè Carducci in his poem 'Before San Guido' - I cipressi che a Bolgheri alti e schietti / van da San Guido in duplice filar (the cypresses that stand tall and frank at Bolgheri run from San Guido in double file) - and this old hilltown, which rose up around a medieval castle, exerts an undying charm. Not far from the coast, the town is nevertheless buried deep in a countryside rich with vines and olive groves, while the town centre shows an admirable harmony of architecture. The aforementioned castle is a distinctive feature, and around it run the celebrated, cypress-shaded road, which connects the historic centre with the Oratory of San Guido. Bolgheri's paved alleyways and its old stone palazzos are often further beautified by beds of geraniums.
