Lamole is located on a high ridge on the other side of the valley of the Greve river from Panzano, and is a popular half-day excursion from Panzano. To get there, drive down from Panzano into the valley towards Greve in Chianti and turn to the left at Barbiano, pass across the Greve flood plain and thence uphill past a number of very small villages to Lamole.
Lorella Federico, who is a professionally trained Italian language teacher, lives in Panzano in Chianti and offers you the chance to learn Italian in Italy. She provides Italian lessons at all levels for individuals and small groups visiting or living in Chianti.
Scattered through the territory of Chianti, there are a number of small museums, mostly of an ecclesiastical or folkloric nature, that are well worth visiting when you are in the area. These small museums often house exquisite treasures that once decorated churches and monasteries that are no longer extant or which have in fact been converted into museums. The small size of these museums makes it much easier to study and appreciate their treasures than is sometimes the case in the huge and sometimes crowded metropolitan museums. Don’t miss them.
