Green hills, ancient villages and cities of art make up what is the Aretino territory.

ARETINE VALLEY MEETING POINT

The confluence point of three of the four valleys that are part of the province of Arezzo, is surrounded to the north by the Casentino, to the south from the Chiana Valley, to the east from the Valtiberina where the first section of the Tiber flows and finally, to the northwest from the upper Valdarno with its characteristic "flounce" landscape consisting of yellow reliefs due to the stratification of clay , gravel and sand that creates striking and colorful scenery.

ARETINO, HOME OF GREAT ARTISTS

But the Aretino is above all the home of great artists such as Petrarca, Piero della Francesca, Michelangelo who have left signs of their art in various sites of the territory. For fans of Romanesque art,the different churches and castles of the territory allow a full immersion in the Middle Ages although several centuries before much of the province of Arezzo was inhabited by the ancient and fascinating population of the Etruscans, testifying to the great importance of the same city of Arezzo in the Etruscan era.
