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.

"It's excellent place to stay, when visiting Tuscany, preferable with car, but public transport is also available."
We are very happy with our stay for one week at La Pietra Grezza. The Lilac apartment is large, clean, ancient and modern well equipped and with dishwasher and washing-machine, and the Wi-Fi works gre… More
was for me a real pleasure having you as Guests, the first from Lithuania.
I'm glad that you all had a good week and that the apartment Lilla was full of your liking.
Thank you for the nice review and I hope that other guests arrive from your beautiful country.
Hoping to be able to meet again I send my warmest regards.

"Beautiful place, very kind and helpful host"
The appartment Lilac is in great ambient, with beautiful vew towards the Arno valey. It has it's own yard, with all facilities for pleasant stay. Living rom is big enough, and kitchen and two bathrooms are well equiped and confortable for pleasant stay of 4-6 people. The enterier is very nice, decorated with pictures and old peaces of furniture. The only disadvantage could be that there is no supermarket or restorant nearby.
thanks for your words and thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. I hope to see again you and your Family.
