Sansepolcro' s population is 16,000. The town has many shops including 6 supermarkets within the immediate area. It is in the fertile river valley of the Tiber River. An ideal place from which you can visit the nearby towns & villages of Citta de Castello, Anghiari, Montecasali, Arezzo, Perugia. Day trips to Florence, Siena etc easily done by public transport.
Antiques market every Friday evening during the summer.
The Sansepolcro Festa - the Balestra - a crossbow competition against Gubbio, is held in the town square each year on the second Sunday in September. On the first Sunday of each month there is a huge Antique Fair in Arezzo.
Sansepolcro is on the upper reaches of theTiber River - good for fishing & swimming. You can walk in the foothills of the Apennines. Market day is Tuesday morning each week with smaller markets on Saturday mornings. Lots of other markets in Anghiari on Wed and Citta di Castello on Thursday. During the summer there are many free evening concerts in Sansepolcro & Anghiari. July evenings often host special evenings eating along the main street 'corso' not to be missed!
The quality of the food in the valtiberina area is tremendous and, even better, the prices are low as the area is not as "touristy" as the rest of Tuscany. There are a number of great restaurants within 3 mins walk. You will be spoilt for choice.
Lots of maps and guides to the area available for use at the house and would definitely recommend the Sansepolcro tourist office if you need more information. We also have lots of English books and dvds.
