About the neighbourhood
There are many towns, spas, festivals and wineries to visit. Eg. Castiglion Fiorentino lies at the centre of a triangle formed by important cities such as Florence, Siena and Perugia. Originally an Etruscan settlement and later a medieval village, lies close to the famous Valdichiana and Cortona. The tower of the ancient castle dominates the town. This charismatic town has much to offer any visitor including its beautiful medieval walls, beautiful churches, art treasures and numerous Renaissance structures - e.g. the Loggia by Vasari at the Piazza del Municipio. However, the town is not your usual tourist stop. It is a working town and when you visit this jewel of Tuscany, you will see more than the architectural and artistic treasure
Getting around
A car is the best idea. Train services are available from Rome, Florence etc - but you will need a car. The closest international rental city (Hertz , Avis etc is at Arezzo)
