Tuscany and Umbria to visit

Beyond Cortona, guests of the Agriturismo Fontelunga are invited to visit the city of Arezzo, just 30 kilometers away, with the masterpieces of Piero della Francesca kept in the church of San Francesco and its evocative Piazza Grande in the historic city center. But are various, and all interesting, the recommended destinations to reach, starting from the Fontelunga Agriturismo.

In fact, between Arezzo and Cortona you will meet some characteristic villages of the Valdichiana, such as Castiglion Fiorentino, Lucignano and Monte San Savino, renowned for its special Porchetta.

Going further, you will arrive in Siena, about 60 kilometers from the Fontelunga Agriturismo, without missing a tour in Valdorcia with a visit to Pienza, Montepulciano and Montalcino to taste some delicacies such as pecorino, Vino Nobile and Brunello. Still in the Siena surrounding, it takes an hour and a half drive from the farm to admire the famous city of "armed towers": San Gimignano.

Heading towards the Umbrian side, 45 kilometers from the Fontelunga farmhouse is the city of Perugia, but before that you will immediately come across small towns like Castiglione del Lago, which overlook Lake Trasimeno.
