Arezzo

   Arezzo is an extraordinary city of art renowned for its goldsmiths and antique traders. Definitely a city that has much to boast of with its Medici Fortress, Roman Amphitheater, Etruscan origins and cultural contribution in the way of artists, poets and artisans. Arezzo is a city that will not assault you with long lines, groups of tourists and fixed menus but rather gently will invite you to stroll the streets and admire what you would call a true open air museum.

Lucignano

     Rigo Salcio is located right outside the old walls of the small village of Lucignano. This town is one of the most extraordinary examples of medieval town planning, with its elliptical concentric rings, which have remained intact over the centuries. Walking through the narrow streets, between houses of stone and brick, you will reach the heart of the village.

Thanks to Lucignano's geographical location, you will be able to reach some of the most famous Tuscan towns in less than one hour day trips.
