The town of Loro Ciuffenna thus becomes an ideal crossroad for ones journey of exploration as it is located in the heart of Tuscany, in the enchanting area of the Valdarno. Valdarno is a valley that winds along the Arno River, as the name suggests, and runs between Chianti and Pratomagno.

Vineyards, olive groves and medieval villages are the natural and historical attractions of the area, while the Valdarno possesses great artistic-cultural value, drawing travelers and historians internationally.

Nature lovers can also visit the Balze of Terranuova Bracciolini (visible in the background of the masterpiece by Leonardo da Vinci, La Gioconda), a spectacular geological phenomenon forming a canyon that recalls western films.
