Casentino is one of the four main valleys into which the province of Arezzo is divided. It is certainly the most fascinating, rich in history and culture – factors which are, as yet, not totally recognized.The first stretch of the River Arno – which rises in Mount Falterona (1654 metres above sea level) passes through this valley. Mount Falterona, together with Mount Falco (1658 metres above sea level) form the northern limit of the valley which borders with the region of Romagna. The Serra and the Catenaia Alps on the eastern side, separate the valley of Casentino from the Higher Valley of Tiberina. To the west, the massif of Pratomagno separates it from Higher Valdarno. Lastly, the western range of Mount Falterona separates the valley from the Mugello.
