The next place to Locanda La Capannucia is Castellina in Chianti (4 km), whose origins date back to remote times, when it was the border of the important Etruscan towns of Volterra, Chiusi and Fiesole.

In fact, in the surroundings except the famous Chianti towns like Greve, Gaiole and Radda in Chianti, there are numerous archaeological sites of Roman and Etruscan origins like the tumulus at Monte Calvario (7th and 6th century B.C.). It is supposed that Castellinas decline started during the barbarian invasions. Only around the 11th century, when Castellina was under the Castle "Castello di Trebbio", feudatory of the Guidi counts, it had an recovery.  Just as in the past, it assumed the function of bordering town, this time on the border between Florence and Siena.
