A province rich in history, traditions, culture, grandiose churches and imposing castles, splendid medieval villages and vast uncontaminated forests.
The province of Arezzo, which has a surface area of 3.233 kmq and is situated in the west of the Tuscan region next to the regions of Emilia Romagna, the Marches and Umbria, is made up of 36 communes with a total of 342.654 inhabitants (2019).
From north to south, the province's territory stretches from mount Falterona to the northern shores of lake Trasimeno, and from west to east from the mountains of the Chianti to the slopes of mount Carpegna and the upper reaches of the river Foglia.
In addition to Arezzo, four characteristic geographical areas can be distinguished within this territory.
The Casentino, the Upper Valdarno, the Valdichiana and the Valtiberina. The first of these corresponds to the upper stretch of the Arno, between the massif of the Alpe di Catenaia to the east and that of the Pratomagno to the west.
The second is the alluvial valley of the Arno, after the river has flowed round the southern slopes of the Pratomagno; it is situated between the western flank of the Pratomagno and the mountains of the Chianti region.
The third is located to the southwest of the Arezzo plain in the bed of a swamp that was gradually reclaimed from Renaissance times onwards.
The fourth is the upper part of the Tiber valley, between the Alpe della Luna to the east and the Alpe di Catenaia to the west.
