How to get there
Fighine is surrounded by many picturesque historic villages and towns, each of which is within easy driving distance of Fighine.

The town of Montepulciano is of exceptional beauty and is chiefly known for its good local "Vino Nobile" wines. The town is encircled by walls and fortifications designed by Antonio da Sangallo the Elder in 1511 for Cosimo I. Inside the walls, the streets are crammed with Renaissance-style palaces and churches.

Pienza owes its beauty and fame to Enea Silvio Piccolomini, who became Pope in 1458. During his Papacy, he changed the ancient Castello di Corsignano into a Papal residence in the Renaissance style and renamed it Pienza.

San Casciano dei Bagni owes its existence to the 42 thermal springs with indubitable therapeutic properties, and its strategic position close to via Cassia and via Francigena roads. The famous natural spa at Fonteverde is available for house guests at Fighine.

Città della Pieve sits on a hill overlooking the River Tiber and is an attractive town with churches and palaces built of brick from the late Middle Ages through the Renaissance.

Orvieto is a city in southwestern Umbria. The site for this city is among the most dramatic in Europe, rising above the almost-vertical faces of tuff cliffs that are completed by defensive walls built of the same stone. Orvieto was a major centre of Etruscan civilization - the Archaeological Museum houses some of the Etruscan artifacts that have been recovered in the immediate neighbourhood.
