Castiglion Fiorentino is a stunning hamlet in the heart of the Valdichiana, surrounded by lush countryside and countless rivers and streams. The hamlet itself overlooks a sumptuous panorama of olive groves, vines and pastures lazily grazed by Chianina cattle. It is a relaxing taste of the country which washes over visitors headed to the hamlet. In order to access the center, visitors must pass the towers in the oldest part of the town, the relics of which were once key strategic points for controlling and defending the town. The heart of the hamlet is Piazza del Municipio, from which you can stroll down the cozy alleyways until you reach the archaeological area of Cassero, which preserves the area’s ancient past. For the hungry, don’t miss out on a stunning Chianina steak washed down with a glass of Tuscan red – the perfect way to toast this enchanting place.
