Aghiari

The province of Arezzo, the easternmost of Tuscany, has a series of really interesting attractions to visit. After leaving the historic centre, move north: a few kilometers after passing the delightful village of Subbiano you will find yourself at the gates of Casentino, a valley between Arezzo, Florence and Forlì-Cesena, where art and culture mix perfectly with an uncontaminated natural landscape. In fact, it is here that the national park of the Casentino Forests is located, which together with the areas of Monte Falterona and Campigna form a single large protected natural area that also borders on Emilia-Romagna. To the east of Arezzo there is a second valley, also very important for the city fabric: it is the Valdarno, right on the border with the province of Florence. Here the Florentine influence is very strong, you can even hear it in the accents of the locals. Among the things to see, the interesting towns of Terranuova Bracciolini, Loro Ciuffenna and Castelfranco di Sopra, as well as the town of Montevarchi, an excellent base for exploring the area. To the south and west of Arezzo, in the heart of Italy on the border with Umbria, there are two beautiful valleys, Val Sovara and Valdichiana: when visiting the first, don't miss the towns of Anghiari and Sansepolcro, while in the second, between its wonderful landscapes and food and wine delights, especially don't miss Cortona, but also Foiano della Chiana, Lucignano, Castiglion Fiorentino and Monte San Savino.
