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 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 Saint Francis, Spello – the Julia colony, of Julius Caesar’s family – the beautiful Foligno and Spoleto – the latter capital of the Lombard’s kingdom in Central Italy, 6th – 8th centuries – Trevi, Bevagna, Orvieto, Terni, Norcia and Cascia.
Moreover, it is possible, from Città di Castello, to visit the nearby Tuscany: Sansepolcro, Anghiari, Cortona, Arezzo, cities known throughout the world for their historical and artistic beauties
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…
