The Big Six: Tuscan Hamlet Hotels

The hamlet, where Dante Alighieri was once a guest, is set on a hill between Siena and Arezzo, encircled by sturdy walls with an imposing tower poking up through the pine and cypress trees. Now run by the count's son, it offers houses and apartments that can be rented on a daily or weekly basis, a Tuscan restaurant just outside the walls, and a pool with sweeping views of the Val di Chiana.
