Discovering the Historic Villages in Tuscany

The Val di Chiana extends south of Arezzo and is a place of boundless beauty, full of treasures and wonders to discover, landscapes to admire and scenic roads to travel. Here history and traditions are in perfect harmony with the landscape and it is precisely this that generates its uniqueness.

Among extensive vineyards and olive groves, on the hills surrounding the Val di Chiana there are numerous medieval villages, the ideal destination to spend 2-3 days discovering these ancient historical centers and their traditions.

Among the most characteristic and to be discovered we can suggest Civitella in Val di Chiana, Cortona, Pienza and Montepulciano (the largest and most famous), but Lucignano, Monte San Savino or Castiglion Fiorentino are also worth a few hours to visit.

One of the best ways to visit the Valdichiana villages is to stroll through the various alleys and corners of the historic centers, or savor a glass of good local wine or some culinary delicacy in one of the many restaurants in the various historic centers (perhaps choosing one with panoramic view of the valley).
