Blessed with beauty, wine and an unparalleled artistic legacy, this area of Tuscany that covers partially the province of Florence, the entire one of Siena and some of the county of Arezzo, is an area that lives largely up to its fame and deserves it: its fabled rolling landscape has long been considered the embodiment of rural chic, a favorite of foodies and wine lovers, while its cities harbour a significant slice of the world's Renaissance art. Blessed with beauty, wine and an unparalleled artistic legacy, it is famous for its hills outlined by endless rows of cypress trees, majestic castles, thermal spa towns, tiny medieval villages surrounded by olive groves: this is an idyllic valley with gorgeous emerald green and a medieval past originating from the Via Francigena, a pilgrimage road that connected Rome to northern Italy and beyond.
Wine and cheese productions are premium, as this is the cradle of the famed Brunello di Montalcino wine, the Chianti, the Super Tuscans and home to pecorino Toscano cheese of Pienza. Near San Quirico lie the Bagno Vignoni hot springs, a medieval spa center renowned for its piazza d'acqua (literally 'water square'), which is almost too beautiful to be true. Home to Vasari, the great artist who designed Uffizi the way they still are today and the setting for much of Roberto Benignis Oscar-winning film La Vita Bella (Life Is Beautiful). Arezzo and its valley are definitely one of the best three locations to visit in Tuscany. All the major attractions that Tuscany is iconically famous for, are located in this area.
