Location

What to do in Arezzo area

Set in the south-east of Tuscany and framed by four magnificent valleys (Val Tiberina, Casentino, Valdarno and Valdichiana), Arezzo is a true gem of the Tuscan countryside and an easy one to explore on foot. An extraordinary city of art, renowned for goldsmiths and antiques traders, Arezzo is home to valuable monuments, cathedrals and museums, all within its historic center.
This corner of Tuscany has been of great inspiration to artists of all trades, from Piero della Francesca, who frescoed the Basilica of San Francesco in Arezzo, to Giorgio Vasari, from the poet Petrarch to Leonardo da Vinci, who supposedly painted a sight of the medieval Buriano Brige over the Arno river in the background of his famous Mona Lisa. More recently, scenes for the Academy-awarded movie “La Vita è bella” (Life is beautiful, 1997) by Roberto Benigni were filmed in this area. Among the many small towns worth a mention, Poppi, one of the best-preserved examples of “walled city”, Castiglion Fibocchi with its unique baroque carnival event, the Etruscan archeological site of Castiglion Fiorentino and the beautiful Renaissance architecture of Cortona. Take it slow and enjoy.
