Villa Pian di Scò is strategically located in the small village of Pian di Scò between Florence, Greve in Chianti and Arezzo, yet belongs in the province of Arezzo. The property’s ideal location is perfect for those who love the countryside yet want to remain close to all of the most famous cities of Tuscany.
Florence is known as the cradle of the Renaissance and is home to artistic and architectural masterpieces. Among the most iconic places to visit are: Il Duomo di Santa Maria del Fiore, designed by Brunelleschi and Giotto, Ponte Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria and the Uffizi Gallery, where you can find on exhibition, works of art by Botticelli and Leonardo da Vinci.
Greve in Chianti is a desirable location known as the “gateway” into the Chianti region. The town is famous for its piazza, which has been a market place since the Middle Ages. In the center of the piazza stands the bronze statue of explorer Giovanni da Verrazzano, who discovered the New York Bay. At the top of the square stands the Church of Santa Croce, originally medieval and remodeled according to Renaissance Revival. The church displays a triptych depicting Madonna and Saints by Bicci di Lorenzo.
Arezzo is full of historical buildings such as the Duomo and is also known for housing paintings of Piero della Francesca, Francesco Petrarca and Giorgio Vasari. Every month Arezzo hosts a lovely Antique Fair and twice per year the adventurous medieval jousting festival La Giostra del Saracino.
