The Tuscany region

Rufina is located in the centre of the Tuscan territory, so it is easy to reach Florence, Prato, Arezzo and many other cities of art in Tuscany by car or train. It is eas to organise day trips to explore the nearby cities that each have historical, cultural and gastronomical sites to capture your attention and make your holidays memorable.
If you have decided to visit Tuscany to taste typical dishes from its culinary tradition, you can book delicious Tuscan dinners organized through Agriturismo Il Pezzatino. The best Tuscan cuisine, cooked in the antique wood oven and served in the farm's charming communal room.
The recipes for cooking Ribollita, Panzanella, Bistecca alla Fiorentina, Crostini are not only to be found in cookbooks. On reservation, you can sample them in the large communal room of Il Pezzatino, fully equipped to serve up a feast for you and all your friends. How best to season and enrich the recipes?

Day trips can also be easily arranged to Siena and San Gimignano, the towered city that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. If you love folklore and want to immerse yourself in the most typical manifestation of Tuscany, visit Siena during the Palio (2nd July and 16th August), the horse race between the “Contrade” held in Piazza del Campo since 1260.
Closer to the Tyrrhenian coast is Lucca with its walls (4 kilometres) still intact and the square formed by the route of the ancient Roman amphitheatre.
A few kilometres from Lucca is its historic rival Pisa, famous for the Piazza dei Miracoli (“Square of Miracles”) and the Leaning Tower.
Lovers of Etruscan archaeology and history can visit Volterra and Cortona, both of which grew in a panoramic position on the ruins of the ancient Tyrrhenian civilization. And to deepen the knowledge of the Etruscan people, as well as a nice walk through the old town, it is also recommended to visit the Archaeological Park and Museum of Cortona.
The Natural Park of the Casentino Forests is worth a visit, or even better a long walk. It is a vast protected area with woods and forests among the best preserved in Italy and with fauna that includes wolves and golden eagles. Inside the park you'll also find Camaldoli and La Verna, important centres of Christian spirituality.
