The Arezzo Province: A journey along the road less travelled

Not far from the Umbria border, our two charming Simpson Hotels, La Madonnina and Mille Desideri, give you the chance to explore a lesser-known Tuscany, including Arezzo and other ancient towns in spectacular locations. Choose one or both of these hotels for your Tuscan Wandering holiday and experience the kind of generous hospitality that comes naturally.
