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.
