The medieval town centre of the city is flanked by the numerous 16th century buildings of great importance, among which stand out the old Cathedral, the Town Hall and the Medici Fortress. Of particular importance are the churches and the artistic masterpieces stored in them: worthy of a visit is the Church of Santa Maria della Pieve and the Church of San Domenico, with the wooden crucifix painted by Cimabue, and again the Basilica of San Francesco frescoed by Piero della Francesca. The most important antiques fair in Italy is held once a month just inside the 13th century walls of the old borgo. Located on a gentle slope at the junction of the valleys of the Casentino, Tiber, Valdarno and Valdichiana, crossed by numerous watercourses, alternating with plains, hills and mountains, the city also enjoys a landscape heritage of great importance, rich in green routes through parks and protected nature reserves. The excellent road connections permit you to explore with ease the numerous characteristic borghi in the area, like Anghiari and Sansepolcro, or in Chianti, like Gaiole and Radda or to get to the main art cities of Tuscany and Umbria, like Florence, Siena, Cortona and Perugia.
