Mount Cetona rises at the southeastern end of the province of Siena, closing to the east the Val d’orcia separating from the Val di Chiana. It concerns the towns of Cetona, San Casciano dei Bagni, Radicofani and Sarteano.
On the south-western slopes of Mount Cetona lies the source of the river Orcia, while in the Valley of the mountain, to the south of the summit, lies the lake of San Casciano.
The peak of the mountain of Cetona is reached in about 2 or 3 hours of walking through paths not very difficult and from there you can admire a beautiful panorama on the whole Val di Chiana, up to Assisi and Perugia and the Val d’orcia dominated by the imposing mole of Mount Amiata.
It is possible to start from the village or take a stretch of the provincial Road 89 of the mountain of Cetona (about 5, 5km) and continue on the left for Fonte Vetriana (municipal Road of the mountain-total distance km9 approximately). From here turn right to reach the summit (total distance km 11.2).
During the journey you can decide to leave the car and continue on foot enjoying the peace of the places and the beautiful views..
