Where we are

Coming from the north, along the E 45 highway, suddenly the wide Upper Tiber Valley opens up, where the historic and famous river that reaches Rome flows.
Here Tuscany, Umbria and Marche meet.
The Tiber River here connects Sansepolcro, to the north, to Umbertide, in the southernmost part of the valley.
Città di Castello is the most important town in the Upper Tiber Valley, where there are seven other smaller towns or villages : Citerna, San Giustino, Lisciano Niccone, Monte Santa Maria Tiberina, Montone, Pietralunga and Umbertide.
Città di Castello is the ideal center for planning trips and getting to know Umbria Region. The beautiful Gubbio, the majestic Perugia, the mystical Assisi of San Francesco, Spello – the Julia colony, of the gens of Julius Caesar -, beautiful Foligno, Spoleto – for a long time the capital of the Lombards in central Italy – Trevi, Bevagna, Orvieto, Terni, Norcia and Cascia – homeland of San Benedetto and Santa Rita.
Moreover, it is possible to leave from Città di Castello to admire the nearby Tuscany: Sansepolcro, Anghiari, Cortona, Arezzo, cities known throughout the world for their historical and artistic beauty,
or go to the Marche and visit the city where Raphael was born, the magical Urbino, one of the most beautiful cities in Italy.

Visiting the Upper Tiber Valley is like discovering a hidden treasure, for its history, architecture and the treasures of its museums. Around every corner there is something exciting…
