The Valtiberina. what to see

The district which comprises the Valtiberina lies on the borders with Emilia-Romagna, Marche and Umbria and was for centuries the crossroads of territorial conflicts and a meeting place of differing cultures and civilisations. The largely intact natural beauty creates a frame for such cities of ancient origin as the unchanged medieval Anghiari. In the marvellous mountains nearby, in Caprese, the great Michelangelo was born. Piero della Francesa painted works of rare beauty, masterpieces of Renaissance art, in his native San Sepolcro, in Monterchi and, in Arezzo, the most renowned of all his creations, the frescoes of the Legend of the True Cross.
