The Arno River is the second longest river in Italy after the Tiber River and its importance is crucial in Tuscany. The territory known as Valdarno covers a large part of Tuscany, from its origin on the Mount Falterona to its mouth close to Pisa. The Arno River runs through with its 241 km some of the most beautiful places of Tuscany. The Upper Valdarno is the area that includes the area south-east of Florence with beautiful towns like Cavriglia, Incisa Valdarno, Montevarchi, Laterina among the mountains of Pratomagno and the hills of Chianti. The Lower Valdarno instead extends westward from Florence to Pisa and includes picturesque villages such as San Miniato, Vico Pisano, Calci, Cascinaia and of course the wonderful Pisa.
Among the sights and attractions of the Upper Valdarno we point out the area of the Chianti hills with vineyards and olive groves typical of the landscape that you will find in Rignano Sull'Arno in Incisa, in San Giovanni Valdarno, Cavriglia, in Montevarchi and Bucine . On the slope to the east you can see the Balze, the rocky phenomena very special and portrayed in the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci. If you adore shopping and major brands, the Upper Vadarno is the place for you: a few kilometers from your villa in Valdarno you will find the Prada Outlet and The Mall Outlet with products of the most important fashion designers at discounted prices. Castles and Romanesque churches can be found all over the territory.
