A tour around

Very famous is the description of the valley made between first and second centuries AD Pliny the Younger (61-113) in a letter to his friend Apollinaris. Pliny had his own favorite villa in the Tiber Valley and so describes the landscape:
"The appearance of the country is beautiful: imagine a huge amphitheater which only nature can create it .... '

The residence at the gates of the City of Castle enjoys a beautiful view overlooking the Upper Tiber Valley.
The attractions are many, finding the location at the crossroads between Umbria, Tuscany and Marche:

- Città di Castello, (5 min.), Cited by the 'Italian Touring Club' among PLACES CAPTIVE of 2015, for its historical center and renaissance for the two museums 'Alberto Burri', one of which the 'squeegee', defined one 'spectacular example of contemporary art and industrial archeology'.

- Sansepolcro (AR) (15 min.), Birthplace of the Renaissance artist Piero della Francesca, where you can admire works as the Polyptych of Mercy (phone number hidden)) at the Civic Museum of Sansepolcro or 'the Madonna del Parto' in nearby Monterchi (AR).

- A few minutes drive you can also visit the medieval Montone (PG), Monte Santa Maria Tiberina (PG), Anghiari (AR).

- A 30-minute drive you can visit Perugia, which the American writer Henry James wrote: "Maybe I'll do a favor by telling the reader how it will spend a week in Perugia. His first care will not be in a hurry, walking everywhere very slowly and aimlessly and to observe all things that his eyes meet. »

Even a 30-minute drive away is the town of Arezzo where to visit for example:
The Cathedral, the Gothic church contains the tomb of Pope Gregory X, XIV century, the Cenotaph Tarlati, the fresco of Mary Magdalene by Piero della Francesca and the windows by Guillaume de Marcillat.

We had a very nice and relax stay at Vincenzo's house. Gregorio, his grandson gave us a warm welcome and helped when we needed something. The only thing we missed was fans for the rooms. They are downstairs as upstairs quite warm. There was one fan instead of 5 for all the rooms…

We had a very nice week in Citta di Castello. The welcome was good and the house is very complete. The swimming pool is big, clean and very welcome in the hot summers. Citta di Castello is a nice city and the distance to the main attractions in the region is fine.
