Calici di Stelle 2017
Calici di Stelle 2017 – What’s better than admiring the beauty of a starry sky while drinking a good glass of Chianti wine?
Calici di Stelle is an event – born from this gorgeous idea – that every year attracts a lot of tourists from all over the world.
The 9th and the 10th of August, it will be possible to admire the beauties of Siena and surroundings and to participate to several events while drinking a huge variety of finest wines and looking at falling stars.
The most important is, without a doubt, the event organized the 10th of August within the Palazzo Pubblico where, starting from 9 pm, it will be possible to visit the Museo Civico, the Torre del Mangia (from the top of which is possible to see the whole historical center) and there will be also the possibility to access to the “ Cantiere Maestà ”, a great piece of art realized by the Sienese artist Simone Martini.
Within the beautiful Loggia dei Nove, it will be possible to admire the starry sky, alongside some specialists and enjoy a huge variety of wines selected by the Sienese winery Enoteca Italiana. In the meanwhile, The Golden Sax Quartet will cheer up your night by playing good music. The price to participate to this event is pretty good: only 7 euros to visit museums, exhibitions and taste wine, and 10 euros to go to the top of the tower (Torre del Mangia).
Near to Siena, in Montepulciano, the 10th of August there is a typical event “Bravìo delle Botti” (a race with barrels) during which it’s also possible to taste the delicious Nobile di Montepulciano Wine, one of the most renowned wines here in Tuscany (together with the Chianti wine) while looking at the falling stars.
Moving upward the Chianti Area, it is possible to reach the town of Castellina in Chianti. In this little city it will be possible to taste the famous Chianti Wine as well as to visit the typical artisanal markets, situated down the main street of the town. Besides, there will be an extraordinary opening of the archeological museum of Chianti and the Unione Astrofili Senese (stars experts) will guide you in observing the starry sky.
