Val Tiberina is the easternmost area of all Tuscany. Enclosed between the Alpe di Catenaria and the Alpe della Luna, the Upper Valtiberina develops along the course of the Tiber river that rises on Mount Fumaiolo in the Tuscan-Romagnolo Apennines, crosses this strip of Tuscany and Umbria and then heads towards Rome and the sea. This has always been a borderland, a crossroads between various regions and for this reason here you can appreciate a great cultural wealth that derives from the meeting of various peoples and civilizations.
The Tuscan Tiber Valley is entirely part of the province of Arezzo and extends over the municipal areas of Anghiari, Badia Tedalda, Caprese Michelangelo, Monterchi, Pieve Santo Stefano, Sansepolcro and Sestino. In each of these hamlets you can get in touch with the culture, history and traditions of this unique and particular valley. A valley that must have inspired two Renaissance greats such as Michelangelo, born in Caprese, and Piero della Francesca born in San Sepolcro. On the other hand, already in the time of ancient Rome this valley was very popular. In this regard we can quote Pliny the Younger who speaks of a “beautiful country” and “an immense amphitheater which only nature can create”.
