Location

Torrita di Siena is located on a hill that overlooks the Valdichiana, the wide Tuscan valley that goes from Arezzo, in the north, to the Trasimeno lake, in the south. Observing the landscape from this viewpoint it is possible to the typical Tuscan landscape with gentle slopes dotted with cypresses, olive branches and vineyards.
This small medieval hill town is a good starting point for sightseeing and excursions in this part of Tuscany.
As a matter of fact, such towns as Montepulciano, or the small Medieval village of Montefollonico ( 10 minutes' drive) are very easy to reach; thermal springs of Chianciano, the Trasimeno lake, Pienza and the wonderful Valdorcia (since 2004 listed in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/1026 ) are just half an hour drive. Further, in the southern part of the area, the Monte Amiata offers skiing and winter sports vacations and thermal baths in the nearby Bagni San Filippo.
Torrita is well connected through A1 motorway and free highways, train, to the main cities of the area such as Arezzo, Perugia and Siena.
