Valdarno, located between the Chianti hills and the
Pratomagno mountains, is divided between the provinces of Arezzo and Florence. The
whole area has great naturalistic and landscape interest: both the valley floor
and the hills are covered by vineyards and olive groves, picturesque clayey
erosion phenomena are observed, Le Balze, and going back to the watersheds you
can find woods, in particular oaks, chestnut trees and beeches. Along the
Valdarno stretch of the Arno is the WWF oasis, Bandella nature reserve.
