Rolling plains, tiny hamlets, barren mountains, but above the Tiber, from which the valley gets its name. Inspired by these breathtaking views, Piero della Francesca in his works often immortalized the Tiber Valley, a wealth of tradition, history and culture remained intact in time and still unexplored.
Starting point and junction of routes of Piero della Francesca, the Tiber Valley has given birth also illustrious Michelangelo Buonarroti and the mathematician Luca Pacioli, who were born in Caprese Michelangelo and Sansepolcro. Along the route between Sansepolcro and Monterchi there’s the medieval village of Anghiari, a fascinating thanks to the scenic location, the thirteenth-century walls and to the still center. It is famous for the Battle of Anghiari, fought between Florence and Milan in 1440, and which Leonardo da Vinci depicted in the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence; over time the work is unfortunately lost.
