Surrounded by the Casentino in the north, Valtiberina in the east, Valdichiana in the south and by the nearby Valdarno Aretino in the west, Arezzo – in the heart of the Tuscan countryside – offers a vast natural and artistic heritage.
The town is located on the Strada dei Setteponti del Valdarno, right on the Pratomagno slopes. Lovers of nature and trekking, prepare to be enchanted.
Close to Castiglion Fibocchi is the unmissable city of Arezzo, with its Piazza Grande, which has also appeared in some famous films such as “La vita è bella” by Benigni.
The town of Capolona is also particularly fascinating, nestled between the hills and the Arno river. It’s best to visit the village in March, during the Marzuolo Truffle Show.
Even the festivals are linked with the history of the castle. There’s one particular event that imbues the piazzas and streets with a fairy-tale-like atmosphere: Carnevale. This town-wide party is steeped in tradition, with colourful and elegant masks much like what you would find in Venice’s famous festival, though this one bears its own unique charm. It’s almost certain that the town’s Carnevale is about 1,000 years old, with evidence pointing to celebrations as early as the 1100s, when it seems that even the local aristocracy would hold their weddings early just so they could be free at this time of the year. During the event, there’s a parade of figures such as fairies, harlequins and queens, but the guest of honour is without a doubt, King Bocco.
Castiglion Fibocchi is also home to delicious food, harvested in the nearby fields. As visitors approach the town, they can see olive trees all around. Olive oil and excellent wines are always sure to make an appearance on dinner tables, as is the local Zolfino bean, a classified DOCG product found all along the Strada dei Setteponti.
