Tuscany is Italy’s most romanticized and visited regions, attracting nearly 50 million tourists a year lured by a life, vacation or profitable business under the Tuscan sun. With its capital in Florence (Firenze) Tuscany stands proud in the heart of Italy having an overall area of about 23,000 square kilometers and a population of about 3.8 million inhabitants.

Regarded as the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance and home to many influential figures in the history of art and science, Tuscany is known for its unique landscapes, history, artistic legacy, and its influence on high culture. Having a strong linguistic and cultural identity, it is sometimes considered “a nation within a nation”.

Arezzo has a population of about 99,000 people and it is about 80 kilometers southeast of Florence at an elevation of 296 meters above sea level and 30 km west of Perugia approximately equidistant from both the Adriatic and Mediterranean coasts of the country.

The location of our home is very well connected both by train and highway to reach in less than an hour every major hotspot, from well-known icon Italian locations to seaside.

Arezzo is set on a steep hill rising from the floodplain of the River Arno. In the upper part of the town are the cathedral, the town hall and the Medici Fortress (Fortezza Medicea), from which the main streets branch off towards the lower part as far as the gates. The upper part of the town maintains its medieval appearance despite the addition of later structures. Originally in ancient times, this city was settled by the Etruscan people and archaeological findings have dated a human presence as far back as the 4th century.
