The Upper Valdarno is a large natural trough, closed north and east by the Pratomagno Mountains and bordered on the west by the Chianti Mountains.

In the Middle Ages, the valley was long disputed between Florence and Arezzo, and today its regions are divided between the two capitals. Numerous archaeological finds of Etruscan and Roman period testify that these areas were already populated in the Archaic period.

The prinipale towns are Montevarchi, San Giovanni Valdarno and Terranuova Bracciolini.

On the slopes of Pratomagno, the "Cassia Vetus", the ancient road that connected the "lucumonia" of Arezzo to Fiesole, now named route "Setteponti". Along the road, "The Cliffs", spectacular landscapes with striking phenomena of clay soil erosion, the Roman Bridge Buriano of 1200 and many other historical and natural places to visit.

Leonardo da Vinci himself, excited at the sight of these places, chose them as the background of his most famous work, the Mona Lisa.
