About this location
The Tuscany region
Florence, considered the home of Renaissance and the Italian art, is one of the most important tourist place in the world thanks to its incredible beauty.

It is one of Italy's best preserved medieval towns, located in the heart of Tuscany.

"Arretium" was one of the most important and wealthy cities during the Etruscan reign and even today preserves some of the original defensive stone walls built around the city and numerous archeological areas.

After passing Ugolino Golf Course, the oldest golf club in Italy, the Chiantigiana runs upward and follows the ridges between the Val d'Elsa and the Valdarno, wandering from one farmhouse and villa to another, from time to time passing through villages and small towns.

PARKING IN FLORENCE
We suggest to park in the parking lot located in Piazza Cesare Beccaria, within walking distance from major Florence attractions and outside the ZTL area. (1,70 euro per hour; Daily fee: 20 euro).
It's rather easy to reach from Grassina. Follow the direction to Florence and at the end of Via Marco Polo, at the traffic light, turn on your left (you will have the Arno river on your left side). Always go straight ahead following Lungarno Aldo Moro, then Lungarno Cristoforo Colombo and finally Lungarno del Tempio. Turn on your right into Viale Giovanni Amendola … you will find the entrance of Parking Piazza Beccaria on your left.
