Eastern Tuscany

Tuscany, the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, is home to the largest collection of Renaissance art and architecture in the world.  It is also the largest region in Italy, so sightseers can enjoy travelling through breathtaking landscapes to explore its cultural treasures.

With its mountain ranges to the north and the Tiber and Chiana valleys to the south, the province of Arezzo offers spectacular scenery as you travel around to explore the rich culture of cities like Cortona and Arezzo and discover the unspoiled charm of the towns and villages of eastern Tuscany.

your gateway to exciting days out...

The beautiful neighbouring Tuscan provinces of Firenze and Siena offer exciting excursions and more breathtaking scenery in Chianti.  

Devotees of Renaissance culture might like to book an overnight stay in Firenze to really explore the artistic and architectural treasures of the Tuscan capital.

Bordering the unspoiled regions of Umbria, Marche and Emilia-Romagna, Eastern Tuscany is also your gateway to the treasures of central Italy.

Enjoy day-trips to San Marino and Ravenna in Emilia-Romagna; Gubbio, Assisi and Perugia in Umbria; Urbino and the beaches of Rimini and Pesaro in Marche.

the unspoiled charm

of towns and villages

When you have seen the major attractions and are ready to escape the crowds, eastern Tuscany and neighbouring Umbria provide spectacular countryside, pristine citadels and unspoiled towns and villages for you to explore.

Wander through the breathtaking landscapes and savour the unforgettable sunsets that inspired the sons of eastern Tuscany, Michelangelo and Piero della Francesca.

The province of Arezzo, one of the largest in Tuscany, contains four valleys – Valtiberina, Valdarno, Valdichiana and Casentino – which meet at the provincial capital, the city of Arezzo.

Valtiberina takes its name from the River Tiber which flows through the region towards Rome.

With its picturesque forested hillsides dotted with charming medieval hamlets, Valtiberina remains a relatively untouched corner of Tuscany, where the views are spectacular, the locals still outnumber the tourists and the welcome is warm.
