About the area
TO DISCOVER THE AREA OF CASENTINO
Stretching between Florence and Arezzo, this beautifully secluded, wide, oval-shaped valley is surrounded by gentle hills which gradually ascend to mountains, on one side climbing to reach the impressive Apennines and on the opposite side to the Pratomagno, whose ridge separates Casentino from the Chianti region on the other side. It is the ring of mountains which has prevented the expansion of motorways and major railways, preserving the valley’s natural state.These ancient woods are full of packed with wild boar, deer, porcini mushrooms and well-marked hiking trails. Casentino is where Dante wrote parts of hisDivine Comedy and it is also where Saint Francis of Assisi received his stigmata. Located only 50 minutes from Florence, 50 minutes from Arezzo, and if you head to Pontassieve from Florence, you can drive up 1,050 metres up to Consuma, the historic mountain pass between Emilia Romagna and Tuscany and do what droves of Italians do to escape the Florentine summer heat: eat some of Italy’s best schiacciata and relax in the mountain shade.
Casentino is often called La Toscana Nascosta (Hidden Tuscany), and cursory looks at Internet and print travel guides suggest that most completely ignore this gorgeous area of the region. But if you like discovering the real Italy, and I mean non-touristy trattorias with local, fresh food where only Italian is spoken, off-the-beaten-track walks and high-altitude air that’s so fresh you can bite it, an adventure in Casentino is for you.
Characterised by its mountains, Casentino covers about 700 square kilometres and is bordered by the ridges of Mount Falterona, Mount Pratomagno and the Catenaia Alps (the group of mountains that separate Casentino from the Valtiberina). The Arno River starts on Mount Falterona and flows along the base of the Casentino valley. The National Park of the Casentinese Forests, Monte Falterona and Campigna (its full name) is the largest one in Italy, covering an area of aprox. 36.000 hectares (about 15.000 acres). The area’s rugged landscape, high altitude and abundance of natural spring water together with its remoteness has for millennia given Casentino the reputation that it still carries today—one of spiritual retreat. For centuries, monasteries, sanctuaries, and hermitages have flourished in the area, and many of these ancient monastic retreats continue to thrive to this day.
The municipalities of the Casetino valley are:
- Castel Focognano
- Castel San Niccolò
The larger towns are all located in the Arno valley, the biggest being Bibbiena and Poppi. The villages located on the neighbouring hills and mountains are much smaller. These are Chitignano, Chiusi della Verna, Montemignaio, Ortignano-Raggiolo and Talla.
