                                  The ancient Castello lies in a panoramic position and is shown on the map of Valdichiana drawn by Leonardo da Vinci in 1503. The Castello is 5 kilometers from the Etruscan town of Monte San Savino where there are excellent restaurants. Arezzo, the setting for Roberto Benigni's Life is Beautiful, is located just twenty kilometers away. It is a city characterized by an array of architectural styles, from Etruscan ruins to the Roman amphitheatre and the Medici Fortress. The first weekend of each month features a popular antique fair, while annually the town hosts a festival called Joust of the Saracens, where all of the citizens dress in medieval attire to watch knights charge at a target (representing the Saracen king). Arezzo also has a train station, convenient for accessing other cities in Tuscany. Six kilometers from the Castello is the A1 motorway exit, which places it in a central position for reaching all of the most interesting places to see such as Florence, Cortona, Siena, Montepulciano, and Perugia in less than an hour. Rome is only an hour and a half away by car. Nearby Attractions: Arezzo is a good starting point for discovering the Casentino Valley, an area characterized by Romanesque chapels, medieval castles and great restaurants. Seek out two Franciscan sites in the wooded mountains of the valley: the monasteries of La Verna and Camaldoli. Two well liked restaurants in Arezzo include Le Chiavi d’Oro and La Torre di Gnicche, known for its baked onion soup, perfect during the winter months. Many fine wineries are located in and around Montepulciano and make great day trips. Visit Bindella, Az. Il Godiolo, Villa Sant’Anna, Poderi Boscarelli and Az. Agr. Poliziano. Arezzo (train station): 20 km Monte San Savino: 5 km
