Cetona is a medieval city in Siena in Tuscany.


A view of Cetona

Originally inhabited by Etruscans and Romans, Cetona developed on a hillside around a fortress, which is still privately owned today. In the 14th Century it was ruled by Siena and Orvieto until 1354, and, after a brief rule by Perugia, was annexed by Siena, which strengthened its fortifications.

Get in[edit]

By car Cetona is easily accessible by taking the A1 Autostrada from Rome or Florence, leaving at Chiusi. There are also rail connections through Chiusi.
