Castiglion Fiorentino

Location Information

Driving from Arezzo to Cortona, break in this picturesque walled town crowned with the impressively restored Cassero, a bulky medieval fortress with panoramic views of the Val di Chiana both from its grassy green grounds and also the top of its half-ruined medieval torre (tower).

Buy tickets to scale the tower from the ticket desk inside the neighbouring Museo Civico Archeologico, a well put-together archaeological museum that incorporates medieval prison cells and the subterranean remains of a 6th-century-BC Etruscan temple and an Etruscan house from the late 4th century BC.

The lower part of Castiglion Fiorentino’s fortress plays sentry to a small collection of art including Taddeo Gaddi’s Virgin and Child in the Pinacoteca Comunale. A combined adult/reduced ticket for both museums is available for €5/3.

A ZTL applies in the streets immediately surrounding the Cassero, but there is ample free parking on Piazza Garibaldi. Walk down the hill to Porta Fiorentina to find the tourist information booth.
