The Tiber Valley, described by Pliny the Younger as an "immense amphitheater" of nature, has fascinated for millennia with its landscapes and villages rich in history. Among them, Sansepolcro, the birthplace of Piero della Francesca, boasts artistic wonders such as the Cathedral with the Perugino Altarpiece. Anghiari, one of Italy's Most Beautiful Villages, is famous for the Battle of Anghiari, painted by Leonardo da Vinci. Caprese Michelangelo, birthplace of Michelangelo Buonarroti, is home to the house where the master was born. Monterchi is worth a visit for Piero della Francesca's "Madonna del Parto." The valley is also a place of spirituality, with the hermitages of Montecasale and Cerbaiolo recalling the presence of St. Francis. The Tiberina Valley is an area that combines art, history and nature, offering visitors a unique experience within walking distance of the Poggio del Drago B&B.
