It is easily reached from the A1 motorway (you will find the map on our website) and is an ideal location for those who want to spend a relaxing and pleasant holiday, but at the same time want easy access to the most beautiful historic towns in the region. Around Bisticci there are many old churches ( the "Pieve di San Pietro a Cascia" with the Masaccio Museum of Sacred Art) and castles (Sanmezzano Castle) and the famous Etruscan road (the Seven Bridges Road) which begins near Rignano sull'Arno. Along this road you will see some of the most lovely Tuscan landscapes, along with seven Romanic churches. In Cellai (a drive down the hill) you can catch a bus to and from Florence and Arezzo. There is a swimming pool 2 km away and a private riding school 5 km, Tennis Club 8 km, 9 hole golf course 9 km, and an 18 hole course 25 km.
