Map of the area Enlarge the map

La Selva Giardino del Belvedere is located in the Chianti hills between the cities of Florence, Siena and Arezzo. These areas, once inhabited by the ancient Etruscans, are dotted with small towns rich with ancient history.

The Tuscan countryside is worth visiting for its wealth of art works just as much as the big cities; every hamlet, castle or hill is a treasure trove of history, good food and fine wines.

During the Renaissance, the great artists such as Giotto, Masaccio, Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo were born in these small towns, growing up in the harmony of the Tuscan countryside, and later developing their art in Florence, at that time the cradle of European civilization.

Indeed the main characteristic of our area is harmony combined with gentleness that is typical of the Tuscan Renaissance.
