Villa La Ripa

We’ve always been here, on the Chianti slopes of Arezzo, in the land of Tuscany, at Villa La Ripa, a Renaissance villa not far from Florence and Sienna. Olive groves and vineyards all around us with their precious oil and wine: Sangiovese, Tiratari, Psyco, Spaziolibero.Rows and rows of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz are well cared for with love and passion with respect for nature and environmental sustainability. The countryside is unique as it has remained unaltered for ages and deserves to be discovered, enjoyed and… tasted. It is recommended to all the lovers of wine tourism for unforgettable visits at the winery.

I recently stayed at a villa in Arezzo and was delighted to discover that within walking distance was a 15th century villa that makes small-batch wine with grapes from 100-year old vines. Booked a tasting for just after our arrival and our small party realized...MoreHi! I remember you so well! It was a memorable day! Come again to Villa la Ripa!

Azienda Agricola Leuta

Reviewed By Mrmitosis - East Greenbush, New York, United States

My wife and I and our 28 year old daughter and her significant other showed up at the Leuta doorstep around 4PM on a Tuesday afternoon. the owner, Denis Zeni, was just wrapping up a previous tour and tasting--immediately after which he focused his attention on us. After a thorough tour of the small and boutique winery we sat down and tasted 6 of his limited supply wines (4 for 10 euros; 6 for 20--the last two were expensive wines). We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I like wine, and his (from Malbec to Merlot and Sangiovese to Cab Franc--and blends) were of a very high quality. I ended up joining his wine club and look forward to receiving 2 cases per year for the foreseeable future.

Eremo Le Celle

Reviewed By Peter E

I'm not a religious person, but this is a place to visit. Impressive to see the small cell used by Franciscus.
It is also a nice walk from Cortona (4.5km) with some beautiful views of the valley. Don't take the Sp34 main road, but a little road leaving from Porta Montanina to Torreone and from there to Eremo Le Celle. You will have much less traffic to take care of.

Our extra-virgin olive oil is pressed from olives grown and hand-picked on our 30 acre olive grove.

We found this through TripAdviser as we were staying nearby, and can only recommend it as a little gem. You need to book in advance but we were very well looked after in this very small family run winery near Castiglion Fiorentino. The wines were varied (amazingly so for such a small property), and the best ones really very good. We came away with an order for several cases!

Parco Nazionale delle Foreste Casentinesi, Monte Falterona e Campigna

The National Park of the Casentino Forests, Monte Falterona and Campigna covers an area of about 36,000 hectares (about 15,000 acres), equally divided between Emilia Romagna and Tuscany, including territory from the provinces of Forlì-Cesena, Arezzo and Florence. From a naturalist viewpoint, the Park stands out as one of the most prized forest areas in Europe. At the heart of the park are the Foreste Demaniali Casentinesi [State Casentino forests], within which can be found the Riserva Naturale Integrale (Integral Nature Reserve) of Sasso Fratino, founded in 1959. The territory also has towns and villages rich in history and artistic and architectural heritage, which present themselves to the visitor in a wonderful natural frame, rich in flora and fauna, including the most important population of the Apennine wolf, as well as the exceptional presence of five species of ungulates (mammals with hooves): wild boar, roe deer, fallow deer, common deer, and mouflon (mountain sheep).Inside the park there are two points of great interest and spiritual importance: the Sanctuary of La Verna and the Hermitage of Camaldoli. The protected area can be visited by pleasant excursions on foot, mountain bike, horseback or, in winter, on cross-country skis along a path network of approximately 600 kilometres.

This is a stunning park in the Apennines - with breathtaking Forests, a fine network of way-marked paths, and many good places to stay - and to eat the abundant and excellent local produce. Considering how close it is to many Italian towns, it's remarkably tranquil and unspoilt.

Anghiari

Reviewed By Cynthia-Ohio - Chagrin Falls, Ohio

We made a trip to Anghiari to visit the main Bussati store - but what we found was a beautiful and picturesque village with warm and charming people. Not many Americans travel here, as it more of a destination for other Europeans. The very hilly streets are not for the faint of heart and were a little daunting on the day we were there with the rain. We ate lunch and just spent some time walking around. Very pretty.

Pieve di Romena

Reviewed By andreascamarda - Udine, Italy

Inside is a simple but perfect beauty, with some relatively recent restoration I guess. Nice apse. Crypt is not significant, but does not matter given the rest. Benches in circle, prayer rooms with carpets, sophisticated audio system with relaxing music, a very interesting altar... great and singular place for eyes and spirit.

La Verna (Santuario Francescano)

Reviewed By RaluMi73

First of all if you visit La Verna watch out for the cost of the parking. It is very expensive. Besides this detail the place is really beautiful. If you are there by 3pm there is the sacred ceremony. It was also hold in the forest above the sanctuary. Come with some comfortable sport shoes to climb up to Monte Pena which is behind the sanctuary. It takes max. 40min to reach the peak in an easy walking. If you wish to eat something stop at the bar that is near the parking place. Above all the visit of the sanctuary is free.

As I came across this museum at TA, it seemed very interesting. It is about medicinal herbs, in a nice building and well laid out. When buying a ticket I received an explanatory brochure in English which made it so more interesting. The entrance ticket is 8 euro, but as it is a pass, it will provide you additional discount on 11 other musea in the area (Valtiberina Pass). There are different rooms like the Pottery Room with all kind of different pharmaceutical containers, the Glassware room with for example glassware from 1700s with hand decorated scrolls and the Herb Room, the heart of the museum. The building itself is a Palazzo and is also interesting. The museum is not that big, so in one hour you can easily see everything. There is a shop attached to the museum which is also open to visitors not going to the museum. In summer the museum is open daily from 10am - 1pm and 3pm - 7pm. If you are around, just spend one hour as it is worthwile.

The spacious and lovely main square features the Town Hall, which dates back to the 6th century.

After Siena, San Gimignano, Assisi and Cortona, we found the Arezzo Piazza Grande strangely much quieter and relaxing.
