The Casentino

The Casentino, like other areas in Tuscany is full of history and art. Its name is thought to be derived from “case in tino” or “homes in the basin”, the central basin of the Arno with many secluded smaller valleys with their own farms and towns. The valley is mostly known for its untouched natural beauty, characterized by vast chestnut and beech woods. The higher mountains reach heights of up to 1500m.

The highest peak is Mount Falterona, (over 1600m) the source of the river Arno. The river flows south down the whole length of the valley and turns north before reaching Arezzo. It continues towards Florence and then Pisa where it finally reaches the Tyrrhenian Sea.

The valley's countryside provides perfect scenery for hiking and horse riding.
