The beautiful town of Arezzo is a 25 minute drive from Antica Quercia Verde. Arezzo was one of the Dodecapolis of the Etruscan League. Its town centre has fine examples of Roman, Medieval, Romanesque and Renaissance churches and sites. The town has been the set of many movies, among those the Oscar winner “Life is Beautiful” of Roberto Benigni. Many historical personalities were born in Arezzo, such as the inventor of modern music notation Guido d’Arezzo, Petrarch the poet and Vasari the painter and architect. It is definitely worth a day trip from our agriturismo that can be organised incorporating a visit to Lucignano, Civitella or Gargonza.
