A fascinating area that includes Arezzo, Cortona, Bucine, Castiglion Fibocchi and Castiglion Fiorentino

Travel ArezzoThe Arezzo territory is located at the meeting point between three of the four valleys surrounding the area. Directly north of the city is the Casentino; the Upper Arno Valley lies to the northeast; and the Chiana Valley to the South. The area is vast and varied: the terrain ranges from flatlands to hillsides to mountains. Neighboring towns include Civitella and Castiglion Fiorentino.
Located on the top of a 345 m hill, Castiglion Fiorentino offers magnificent views of the Chio Valley and the Preappennino, which glitters with the silverly light of olive groves. Its strategic position between Arezzo and Chiusi made it a center inhabited during the time of the Etruscans (6th to 5th c. BC); it was an important medieval center as well. The historic center, dominated by the Cassero tower and surrounded by walls, preserves the medieval structure and is testimony to the artistic history of the area since the time of the Etruscans. Its position as border town between Tuscany and Umbria makes it an easy place to get to from many of Italy's cities. Visitors can find traditional cooking, local organic produce and artiginal productions.
Other nearby towns are Laterina, Castiglion Fibocchi, Capolona, Anghiari, Monterchi, Bucine and Cortona, as well as the ity of Perugia, in Umbria.
