Chiusi is strategically located in the center of Italy. Within about one hour drive tourist can visit Orvieto, Todi, Perugia, Assisi, Cortona, Arezzo, Siena, Montepulciano, Pienza and Montalcino. By train (station at Chiusi) it takes 1 hour 15 minutes to the center of Rome and 1 and half to the center of Florence (there is, therefore, a time and cost saving factor that is very important, plus the elimination of driving and parking problems within the cities). Chiusi itself is extremely interesting to visit (Etruscan Museum, 6th century Chatedral, Chatedral Museum, Etruscan necropolis, Catacombs) and special events are organized (wine festival at the end of September and patronal feast in mid August).
The oldest part of the town spreads uot over the top of a hill, in a strategic position overlooking the Val di Chiana and the roads heading into Umbria and Arezzo. Chiusi was at the height of its importance during the lucumon reign of the famous King Porsenna (6th Century B.C.) and today it still preserves its Etruscan and Roman origins, which make it an important and extremely famous archeological centre. A few kilometres away on the southern borders of the Val di Chiana there is the peaceful Lake of Chiusi, set amongst fields and reed thickets and a popular destination for thousands of anglers and ornithologists.
In the surroundings of Chiusi, Cetona (medieval village, pre-historical caves, Franciscan sites), Chianciano (thermal waters, Spas), Montepulciano, Pienza (charming small town with the most beautiful view of Southern Tuscany), Montalcino (the town of Brunello wine).
