Lucignano, “Pearl of the Valdichiana”

Lucignano, a medieval village with a typical concentric rings structure, is located at the crossroads between the provinces of Florence, Arezzo, Siena and Perugia. Awarded with the “Orange flag” by the Touring Club, it has a remarkable artistic heritage, beautiful landscape and great food and wine.

Lucignano, the pearl of Valdichiana, is one of the most interesting examples of medieval town planning for his elliptical structure based on concentric rings. The favorable location of Lucignano, on top of a hill on the border between the former estates of Firenze, Arezzo, Siena and Perugia, has made it strategically important since olden times.
Like all boundary lands, it has undergone various cultural influences, but the connection with Siena remains the one that more than any other has characterized the urban and artistic development of the town. Mostly Sienese are the artists who produced the works of art preserved today in the Municipal Museum, including the extraordinary Golden Tree, a jewel of medieval goldsmithry and a compendium of Franciscan symbolism.

Lucignano is part of a privileged tourist network. In a very short time you can reach easily the most renowned towns of central Italy (28 km to Arezzo , 35 km to Cortona and lake Trasimeno, 45 km to Siena, 70 km to Perugia , 80 km to Florence ), although this village remains part of a hidden Italy, the more authentic and untouched by mass tourism. As far as the horizon a cultured countryside in complete harmony with the landscape, gives the visitor the feeling of a place suspended out of time.

The quality of a stay in Lucignano is also guaranteed by the orange flag of the Italian Touring Club, awarded for "the promotion of cultural heritage, environmental protection, culture, hospitality, access to and availability of resources, the quality of accommodation, catering and local products".
