The Tuscany region
Nothing can be said about Tuscany that has not been said better elsewhere.
The city of Arezzo is a hidden gem. Arezzo was born as a pre-Etruscan city, dating from the Paleolithic era. The Etruscan town of Arretium was built on top of the hill of San Donato sometime in the 9th century BC.
Each month there is a huge antique market in the streets of Arezzo (the first Sunday of the month and the preceeding Saturday)
Castiglion Fiorentino is surrounded by picturesque hill towns (including Cortona), each designed to be one day's walk apart (in medieval times it was important to be behind stone walls at sundown).
In June, Castiglion has a palio (similar to the one in Siena, but on a smaller scale). The week preceeding is filled with festivities, culminating with an alfresco dinner held in the streets of the town!
Florence is easily accessible via a one hour train ride, as is Assisi (in Umbria) in the other direction.
