Into the East
Mix it up a bit by balancing well-known destinations with some intriguing off-the- beaten -
track alternatives. Spend three days admiring the Renaissance splendour of Florence be-
fore branching out east into the little-visited Casentino region, home to the idyllically isol-
ated Parco Nazionale delle Foreste Casentinesi, Monte Falterona e Campigna . Base
yourself around the fortified hill town of Poppi for three days, sampling the area's rustic
and delicious cuisine, visiting the isolated medieval monasteries of Camaldoli and La
Verna , wandering around the evocative ruins of the Castello di Romena and walking a
few trails in the national park. Next, meander southeast to Sansepolcro , proud possessor of
charming medieval churches, great restaurants and a museum showcasing works by the
great Renaissance painter, Piero della Francesca.
