If you want a splendid holiday, if you want to enjoy the simplicity of peasant life as it once was in a setting created by people who themselves love nature, we have found the place for you: Casentino, one of the most beautiful valleys not only in Tuscany, but in Italy, situated south of Florence and north of Arezzo. This is the birthplace of the Arno, which runs through the valley, embroidering it with meanders, waterfall and wider stretches where the water seems reluctant to leave it. A lot of Italian history - epic, literary and mystical - has been written in the valley. A handful of names, which nonetheless fill hundreds of pages of the encyclopedias: the great sculptor and painter Michelangelo Buonarroti - noble son of the valley - Paolo Uccello and Giovanni Maria Bibiena; Dante Alighieri, who came here first as a young Guelf knight at the battle of Campaldino, then as a wandering exile; Saint Francis, who ascended the mountain of La Verna, where he founded the monastery that he loved above all others, Saint Francis, who ascended the mountain of La Verna, where he founded the monastery that he loved above all others; Saint Romualdo, founder of the hermitage of Camaldoli, where his sole companions were the sun and the sound of the wind in the trees of the surrounding forest. A discerning observer will be able to discover the many Romanesque churches, abbeys and sanctuaries of Casentino, all of which evoke the valley's thousand-year history.
