The property is 900 meters from Subbiano, a characteristic Tuscan village on the left bank of the Arno. Here you will find a Monday morning market, and if you're traveling in September you may be in time to join with the locals in their celebration of the grape festival, with product tasting and other traditional activities. The Museo dell Casa Contadina (farmhouse museum) is worth a visit, and you should also keep on the lookout for the remains of numerous water mills along the banks of the Arno. However, you'll probably spend most of your local hours exploring Arezzo, the charming town used as the backdrop for Roberto Benigni's "Life is Beautiful." Once one of the most important Etruscan cities, today Arezzo is beautiful for an array of architecture spanning centuries, from Etruscan ruins to the Roman amphitheatre and the Medici Fortress. The first weekend of each month brings a popular antique fair, while annually there is a festival called "Joust of the Saracens," where all of the citizens dress in medieval attire and knights representing each part of the city charge at a target representing a Saracen king. The area is also well-situated for day trips throughout Tuscany. Florence can be reached in 30 minutes by train from Arezzo; a train to Rome takes about an hour and ten minutes.?
