The Umbria region

La Rondinaia is in northern Umbria, very close to the border with the region of Le Marche and not far from the region of Tuscany. The towns of the Upper Tiber Valley: Citta di Castello, Pietralunga, Montone, Umbertide, Sansepolcro and Anghiari are within easy reach as are Arezzo, Gubbio, Assisi, Perugia and Urbino. The high Appenine massif of Monte Nerone (1525m) is nearby, you can drive to the top for walks, views and an alpine climate and ecosystem. Siena, Florence, Ravenna and even Rome can all be visited from La Rondinaia, Fano on the Adriatic coast is under an hour and a half away.

Northern Umbria has a lot to offer the visitor, the countryside is predominantly rural and hilly, the towns usually have well preserved Renaissance and medieval architecture and, this being central Italy, there is a wealth of artistic masterpieces waiting to be discovered in almost every town.

Pietralunga

The wooded hillsides around Rondinaia are truffle hunting territory. The nearest towns of Pietralunga and Citta di Castello both have autumn festas dedicated to this expensive fungus, in the case of Pietralunga, the festa is also dedicated to the Pietralunga potato, particularly suited to mashing, gnocchi and roasting because of its firm texture. Pietralunga (15 minutes' drive) has supermarkets, bars, a pizzeria and a restaurant. Citta di Castello (20-25 minutes) is the larger town and here you have a wider choice of amenities.

In addition to Citta di Castello, Sansepolcro and Umbertide, there are many smaller places to explore in the Upper Tiber Valley. Pietralunga, Montone, Monte Santa Maria Tiberina, Lippiano, Morra Citerna, Monterchi and Anghiari are all worth a visit, some for little known artworks such as Luca Signorelli's frescoes in Morra or the better known Pregnant Madonna by Piero della Francesca in Monterchi. In other towns and villages you'll come across spectacular views, architecture and great restaurants specializing in local cooking.
