Additional Location Information

Situated on the Umbrian border with Lazio and Tuscany, Bisenzio Tower overlooks the stunning scenery of the Monte Rufeno national park in Umbria, the green heart of Italy.
The whole area is a food lover’s paradise. Umbria is home to the world famous salty Pecorino cheese and crisp dry Orvieto wine. Some of Italy’s finest wine areas are on the doorstep and there are many small family-run vineyards which welcome visitors.

This means easy access to fascinating places including Orvieto, Arrezzo, Assisi, Cetona, Montepulciano, Perugia, Siena and Spoleto as well as the lakes of Bolsena and Trasimeno.
Rome is two hours away on the Autostrada, and served by regular trains from the small town of Fabro, which is just a 10-minute drive from Torre. Highlights include the Vatican City, Roman Forum, Colosseum and Spanish Steps.Florence is about an hour and a half drive away and is on the train line from Fabro. Highlights include the Uffizi Gallery, Ponte Vechio, Boboli Garden, Pitti Palace.Siena is an hour and twenty minutes drive away, and again reachable by train from Fabro. Visit the beautiful Campo square where twice a year (2nd July, 16th August) the world famous Palio takes place – a horse race dating back to the 1600s.
