Tuscany is a treasure trove of truly rare pearls: many works of art, enclosed in a few cities ... just a stone's throw away (as they say here!) From Il Borgo! Are you curious to find out which ones? Arezzo, 5 km scarce, whose profile is visible already from the estate, is a medieval city, full of famous works, from Piero della Francesca to Cimabue. Florence, cradle of the Renaissance, just 80 km away opens the doors of its timeless beauty to you. The Uffizi, the Davide, Ponte Vecchio, the Oltrarno taverns ... Siena, 60 km away, surrounded by the lunar landscape of the Crete, will welcome you with its historic Palio.
The powerful Etruscan walls surround Cortona, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy! The city also offers many specials: the authentic medieval houses, the frescoes by Luca Signorelli and the magnificent contemporary works of Gino Severini. In recent years Cortona has been the natural stage for many famous Hooliwodian films, such as "Under the toscany sun", and for international music and cultural festivals.
Woods as far as the eye can see, prairies, clear streams, waterfalls and mountains, is the National Park of the Casentinesi Forests, Monte Falterona and Campigna, straddling the Apennine ridge that separates Tuscany from Romagna. The boundaries of the park touch 11 municipalities and include the Romagna valleys of the Bidente, the Rabbi and the Montone, extending into the Tuscan territory as far as the slopes of Monte Penna, where the famous Franciscan Convent of La Verna stands. In this environment, you can indulge in trekking and walks along paths of any difficulty.

San Sepolcro: "The resurrection" at the Civic Museum.
