Cetona

Some of the oldest human settlements of central Italy were discovered at the base of Monte Cetona, such as the early neo-Paleolithic Gosto cave (40–80th century BC) and Lattaia cave (9–10th century BC).  The town of Cetona developed around 900 AD around the fortress which to this day is privately own.  Next to the Cetona is a small hill with a Palazzo a Parco Terrosi currently owned by Valentino.  We were going to see the fortress but chanted out minds.  A light drizzle started on our way down, by the time we sat down for a coffee the skies opened up with a monsoon – we would have been soaked right through. This town like most others is clean and restored a pleasure to visit and hang out in.
