  • Fly fishing

    The best place to go fly fishing in Tuscany is in the river Alto Tevere at Sansepolcro, west of Arezzo, about 1 hour 40 minutes by car from Siena.

    In the Lucca area, the natural basin created by Serchio, the river that crosses Garfagnana from north to south, from Sillano to beyond Castelnuovo di Garfagnana, is a good choice of location, too.

    For expert fly-fishing guides and tours, contact Fly Fishing Italy, which offers hand-picked, patient and friendly professional guides, who will offer tips and techniques, whether you are a seasoned fly fisher or a first-timer.

  • Lake fishing

    Lake Vallechiara, at Quornia, on the road between Castellina in Chianti and Monteriggioni, is a good spot for fishing. Follow the signs for Ristorante Vallechiara, where the owners hire out tackle, then settle down by the lakeside and cast your rod in the hope of reeling in carp, sturgeon and trout.

    Lago di Chiusi and Lago di Montepulciano, near Chiusi and Montepulciano respectively, are by far the two of the best places to go lake fishing in Siena province. (Ristorante Pesce d'Oro, near Labo di Chiusi, is a good spot for lunch, too.) Seek permission to fish from the contacts below.
