CULTURAL TOURS IDEAS:

Cortona – 30 minutes by car. It is situated on a hill not far from Siena, Assisi and Perugia. Visiting this city means an encounter with Etruscan art, with history and with spirituality.

Siena – 50 minutes by car. Siena, is one of our favorite city in Tuscany. If you spend a week with us at Fontanaro don’t miss a day trip to this city.

Pienza  S superb example of Renaissance architecture, built upon request by Enea Silvio Piccolomini, who was Pope Pio II from 1458.

Montepulciano

Città della Pieve

This characteristic village was touched by the events of the medieval history, and indeed, a number of masters had the control of the town until when Clement VII placed it under the direct control of the Church.

Orvieto

Orvieto origins go back to the Etruscan civilization: the first Etruscan settlements, going back to the 9th Century B.C. A must to see is the Duomo, and local gelateria Pasquinetti.

Castiglion del Lago

The name derives from the medieval fortress built around 1250 and called “Castello del Leone” (Lion Castle) because of its pentagonal shape inspired by the constellation Leo.

Trasimeno lake

The coexistence of the green, gently sloping hills of the tuscan-umbrian countryside, with evocative panorama of the lake and historical villages full of art and culture, have given this territory a particular charm.

Chiusi

Chiusi’s origin dates back to the first millennium before Christ. In the 6th century B.C. Clevsin or Chamars (Chiusi’s Etruscan names) was one of the 12 most im­portant cities in the Etruscan federation. Today there are 5 museums to visit in this city!
