VALDICHIANA : ETRUSCANS LAND EXPERIENCES   

AREZZOexperiences

Crossed by the sweet waters of the Arno river and Lake Trasimeno, it protects itself with the Apennines and its Castles in mystical Etruscan atmospheres, all to be experienced 

This valley is a huge fertile plain, bordering Lazio, Umbria and Tuscany. It is characterized by cultivation of excellent productions, such as the olive and the vine, and an agricultural production level so high as to have become the symbol of the Terre di Siena, and of entire region. We are in the land of "good", then, but we are also in the land of "beautiful”. Many villages dot the surrounding hills jewel with their unique heritage of art and history, which tell us of the Etruscans, Romans, and of the Renaissance age. And then there are the spas. The water is the protagonist of this territory , manifesting itself not only in the sources but also beneficial in the two lakes of Chiusi and Montepulciano, representing today's two oasis of peace and life for many birds and animals that find their paradise . The Val di Chiana has boundaries blurred as the lightness of its dawns, as the glow of the sunset reflected in the motionless sea of Crete, biancane of rare beauty, in the ravines of Orcia, which glimmered on the waters of Chiusi and Montepulciano, which sank in the deep mystery of Etruscan civilization, exploring the labyrinth of Porsenna, bouncing on the uneven Cetona and eventually flow into vital sources of Chianciano and San Casciano dei Bagni. Visiting Val di Chiana means getting in tune with its tuning fork witch, as in a score sensory, vibrates all chords: from those of history fading into legend and mystery to that of pleasure that ends in wellness (in the miraculous waters of Chianciano Terme, Montepulciano and San Casciano dei Bagni) and greedy enjoyment (the great wines of Montepulciano, the culinary influences of Sinalunga with a delicatessen of the highest lineage, the extra virgin Olive Trequanda) from those of the beauty that is substantiated in the landscape and architecture (exploring Sarteano, Torrita di Siena and the aristocratic rural Cetona you will have a proof) to those of the myth suspended between nature (the oasis of Chiusi, the severity of the Monte Cetona) and the harmony of living that is the hallmark of this area, rich of ancient witness. The villages and small towns of Val di Chiana seem to be laid out in accordance with a precise, almost mathematical scheme in which they are about five kilometres distant one from the other until the Arezzo province where we can visit some gems of the middle ages as Lucignano and Montesansavino . Then the highlights on the border of the Umbria region as Cortona , Castiglion Fiorentino and Fioano della Chiana
