Check local sites using key word Cetona.

Cetona is a town and comune in the southern province of Siena, Tuscany, in an area where Umbrian and Lazio meet. The geographical elevation is between 250 and 1,148 meters the town is situated at around 350 metres,
Some of the oldest human settlements of central Italy were discovered at the base of Monte Cetona, such as the Gosto cave early neo-paleolithic, 40-80th century BC and Lattaia cave 9-10th century BC.
The Belverde park host 25 prehistoric and Bronze Age caves, such as the San Francesco cave. In addition, Several Etruscan finds.
The town of Cetona developed on the hillside around the Rocca fortress containing a square tower (ca900ad) and an inner fortress wall. It became know as the Scitonia castle. In the 1300s, Cetona was alternately ruled by Siena and Orvieto, and after a brief ruling by Perugia annexed by Siena. An outer wall was built, containing two round towers (1458 AD).
Grand Duke Cosimo 1 de Medici sold Cetona in 1556, to the marquis Chiappino Vitelli (1519-1575), who made the fortress into a private residence, and built the piazza, today named Piazza Garibaldi. His descendants also erected palazzo Vitelli in the late 1600s. Cetona was connected to Sarteano (1772-1840), and included in Italy by King Vittorio Emanuele 11 (1861).
The name of Cetona or Citonia (local variation) probably comes from the Latin word caedita, (deforestation with regard to a deforested and cultivated).
Churches in Cetona are the Chiesa di San Michele Arcangelo (built 1155) and the Chiesa la Collegiata della San Trinita church (1745), as well as the convento di San Francesco (1212) and the convento di Santa Maria a Belverde with frescoes by Cola Petruccioli of Orvieto.

We had a lovely stay. The apartment was excellent, clean and modern, it has a balcony where you can eat and take in the views. Adrian was welcoming and very helpful. The town of Cetona itself is a hidden gem and is a great base to explore Tuscany and Umbria from. We had a thoroughly enjoyable week.

Hi many thanks for your review

Couple from Joinville Le Pont, France · August 2015
We have just passed a wonderful week at 'Casa Degli Olivi' It is a veritable home from home. Clean, extremely well equipped (what you do not have Adrian or Fabio will provide for you) deceptively spacious with ample storage space. One or two people have written about the traffic noise - so I must address this point. Yes the villa is next to a...
