Cetona is featured in the book "The Most Beautiful Villages in Tuscany". It is a typical hill town with streets circling the hill up to the central fortress. The village and its surroundings (Monte Cetona), covered by woodland, olive groves and vineyards, are extremely beautiful. There are a number of good restaurants and bars within walking distance. A weekly market is held in the piazza on Saturday mornings.
Cetona sits above the Val di Chiana and is close to the famous wine centres of Montepulciano and Montalcino. Chianti Colle Senesi is produced locally, as well as olive oil, Pecorino, ham, salami, beef and many other foods. Pici is the local pasta. Chiusi, with its Etruscan museum and remains and Citta della Pieve sit the other side of the valley.
A short and beautifully stunning drive to other side of Monte Cetona brings you to the Val d’Orcia Unesco World Heritage Site and is home to the moon-like Crete di Senesi and many beautiful small towns including Pienza, San Quirico d’Orcia, San Casciano dei Bagni and Radicofani, which dominates the old road from Rome to Florence.
The extinct volcano of Monte Amiata still generates enough heat to power several famous thermal spas, including Fonteverde at San Casciano dei Bagni, Terme di Chianciano, Bagni San Filippo, Bagno Vignoni, Terme di Montepulciano and Terme di Rapolano.
Lago Trasimeno, a large lake with islands, is only 30 minutes away, and again there are beautiful towns and villages such as Castiglione del Lago, Panicale and Paciano to discover. Cetona is within easy reach of Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Perugia, Orvieto, Cortona and Assisi, the A1 Autostrada being only 10 minutes away. Rome is an hour and ten minutes away by fast Inter City train from nearby Chiusi.
