Montevarchi, a trip back to ancient times

If you are one of those people who like to visit interesting places during your holidays rather than spending your days doing nothing but sunbathing on a beach or going clubbing at night, little countries in the world will satisfy your needs as much as the extremely popular Italy. There is no doubt that Italy is one of the most visited countries in the world every year, in fact, countless researches state it's one of the few countries which, rather than losing popularity, become more and more popular by the day. It has just about everything: from gorgeous beaches to great museums and extremely interesting places full of ancient history. That is why if you are looking for an original and interesting place to visit in Italy, you can not miss out on the chance to see Montevarchi. This town in the province of Arezzo, in the gorgeous region of Tuscany, is not an overly popular place, but that doesn't mean you won't fall in love with it. If when you visit a particular place you want to feel like you really are somewhere else, just immerse yourself in the little, narrow streets of Montevarchi, and get ready to feel like you have traveled back in time. There are still many walls from the middle ages, the ones which used to protect the town from attacks, up all over it. And it's by walking through the streets of Montevarchi that you will definitely come across what has to be one of the highlights of the town: the San Lorenzo church. This was built in a mixture of gothic and romantic styles, which makes it pretty different to most other churches in the whole region. You will of course get the chance to visit the pretty large interior and take a close look at all the statues which adorn it. But in Montevarchi there is also Villa Masini, an impressive palace which you will have the chance of visiting only in spring. If that is the time of the year you are planning on visiting Montevarchi, please don't miss out the chance of visiting it with the help of one of the official guides which will explain you everything there is to know. Also, pay special attention to the garden which surrounds the house because it's extremely gorgeous and well kept. However, if you would like to do more than simply walk around visiting interesting places full of history, why not go for a walk in the Prada outlet which can be found in the town? Italians are known for their extremely good taste in fashion, so go for a look and you might come out with some great pieces at great prices. And if you are visiting Montevarchi during the hottest months of the year and you are hoping to be able to freshen up every now and then, why not organize a little picnic next to the Arno river? Not only it is beautiful there, you will also be able to go for a little, relaxing swim.

They can also explore on foot or bicycle the Arno valley and the Chianti region, using the numerous waymarked trails and quiet roads in the area. (We supply maps). Or they can simply relax by the fire or in the garden, chat, read a book and enjoy a glass of Chianti wine...

She can tell you also about Toscana Minore, lovely places off the beaten track that are not swarming with tourists: an abbey, a rose garden, a Romanesque church, a 12C mill - the list is endless. If desired she can organize wine-tasting at a celebrated Chianti Classico winery. She used to teach English at Florence University and is also ready to help you to brush up your knowledge of the language. For those interested in fashion, there are two important outlets in the vicinity, Prada (4km) and The Mall (18km). Guests stay in an agriturismo, Jenny's 17C farmhouse overlooking the Arno valley.
