Surely one of the spas most famous in Italy; however increasingly to the waters, it is probably linked to the presence of a significant human settlement that would constitute a major center Etruscan-Roman. Important example of this is the finding of a monumental complex spa being excavated in central location “Mezzomiglio”. Many other finds of Etruscan and Roman times, some of whom recently discovered are visible in the Archaeological Museum “Delle Acque”.
The city tourist-thermal arose adjacent to the old medieval Chianciano that embodies the small treasures of Romanesque and Renaissance: Some of these treasures – such as paintings of the Sienese school and Fiorentina, the followers of Duccio di Buoninsegna and Arnolfo di Cambio – you can admire in the Museum of Sacred Art in Palazzo dell’Arcipretura. Chianciano is at about 550 meters s.l.m. surrounded by large forests of oak, beech, oak and chestnut between Chiana and Val d’Orcia.
