The Valdarno. what to see

The Valdarno is the valley of the River Arno and it begins where the river turns its course towards the north, close to Arezzo, at the point where it is crossed by the Ponte a Buriano. This is the bridge that inspired Leonardo da Vinci and which he included in the background to his most celebrated painting, the Mona Lisa. Nearby is the unique natural feature of gullies and ravines formed by erosion in the clay hillsides, and the valley then opens out onto life and luxuriant colourful landscapes, where there are wonderful views of towers soaring over such ancient villages, churches and castles as Gropina, Loro Ciuffena and Cenina.
