Find Monte Grossi, the old, crumbling castle about half way between Montevarchi and Gaiole in Chianti. At the base of the hill there is an area to park along the road. Park here and walk along the road. You have a nice view of Gaiole to your right. Where the road takes a sharp turn you will see a path to your left that leads up the back side of the hill. Take this to the top. Find your way into the old castle. Spend some time looking around. Try to imagine what it might have been like to live in a place like this centuries ago. It is a beautiful space. The box is hidden in the the only room in the castle with a roof (but not in the pit!). Look out the window at the great view and then turn to your left. Don't tear apart the wall, we placed the box in a hole where timbers were placed. You can see the box in the hole, while looking through the timber hole.

Please let email us the status of the box at joyoussubterfuge2@yahoo.com.
