ATTRACTIONS:The Valley, a mixture of art, history and nature offers a glimpse of that Tuscany and Umbria which are only partly known and where there is no mass tourism, where peacefulness andenjoyment of life follow the rhythms of nature. It happens that the tourist who goes in search of Arezzo, Monterchi, Sansepolcro e Caprese Michelangelo will follow the same route as Piero della Francesca in the journeys he made for his work. The famous renaissance painter, who came from this area, is a rare case of a great artist who continued to live and work in the place where he was born. His major works are in Arezzo, Sansepolcro and Monterchi. Caprese Michelangelo is where the great artist Michelangelo was born. In this area there is also one of the most beautiful mediaeval village of Italy, Anghiari , and not far from Arezzo there is Cortona , an incredible etruscan city with such an incredible view that reaches the Trasimeno : experience the warm evenings, abundant vineyards and olive groves, welcoming people, medieval hill-towns and gastronomic delights.
