The Arno Valley follows nearly the entire course of Tuscany’s most important river, flowing over a distance of 150 miles (241km) from Monte Falterona to Marina di Pisa and through Tuscany’s principle settlements such as Florence and Pisa. The valley actually begins at Arezzo, at which point the infant river changes its direction and takes a northerly course, and is incredibly scenic with its rolling verdant hills and liberal spattering of ancient castles, villas and fortresses.
