Anghiari (18 Km)
It is a small and quiet Tuscan village full of charm. It can be explored in half day strolling through its narrow lanes alternating uphill and downhill. Quiet and spotless, it looks like a village escaped from a fairy tale. It certainly deserves a stop, even a very short one. Not to be missed: Palazzo Marzocco, Palazzo Pretorio.

Lovely, it seems to be a dive in the past.Gent very friendly and hospitable. there is a great kitchen, especially for mushroom lovers. The best time to go is May for the famous Corsican Race or in December to see the world’s tallest Christmas tree but it’s also beautiful in September. and less crowded.
