Geocache Description:


This is a standard cache in a tupperware type container with a blue lid. To get to the cache you need to approach on the route known as "Chiantigiana" otherwise SS222 (sometimes SR222). The only difficult part is deciding which route off the SS222 to take.
I would recommend that you park at N43.38.861 E011.19.822 just before a large Chianti castle. (These are more in the style of large English manor houses) While the road continues for a little bit beyond this turning is close to impossible beyond this point - the remaining properties are gated.
Where the road ends (house no 6) a hunting path (also a stream bed when wet!) leads into the trees - while we had no problems signal may be difficult - there are no tricks follow the track to N43.38.861 E011.19.996 where there is a clear view of the sky.
You will be 10-12 feet from a derelict house and the cache is behind it round the right hand side.
Locating the correct road will give you some spectacular views of the Chianti hills as will the hike itself.
Enjoy the hunt.
Original contents are: A Black and White Cow (almost certainly a travel bug but I didn't notice a tag), Pisa note book, purple elephant, a beaker for the thirsty, ball, log book and a registered travel bug who will be reported through the normal channel.
