ARNO RIVER
   The river which forms the northern boundary of Etruria and whose catchment contains a number of smaller Etruscan settlements such as Artimino, Fiesole, and Arezzo, as well as the port of Pisa at its delta. The Arno rises in the Apennines on Monte Falterona (1,654 meters) and runs some 241 kilometers in a route also determined by the tectonic basins, covering a catchment of some 8,247 square kilometers, until it reaches the sea near ancient Pisa. The Arno catchment also provided an important communication route through to the Po Valley, either through the Mugello or with more difficulty through the Upper Arno or Casentino.
