Città di Castello

Overview

Città di Castello, nestled along the Upper Tiber Valley in Umbria, belongs to an area rich in history, art and nature, thanks to its centuries-old culture. Here, the “artistic vocation” is all-encompassing: in the enchanting atmosphere of the historic centre, the elegant Renaissance architecture, the loggias of the noble palaces, and the courtyards, cloisters and naves of the churches. The 11th-century Cathedral, home to many treasures, and the churches of Santa Maria Maggiore, Santa Maria delle Grazie, San Francesco and San Domenico are all worth visiting.

Don’t miss the Cathedral Museum, next to the cathedral, which houses precious examples of sacred art, and the Textile Collection in Palazzo Tommasini, dedicated to the history of the “Tela Umbra” company.

To admire 16th-century masterpieces, head to the Pinacoteca Comunale in Palazzo Vitelli: expanded with new exhibition rooms, it boasts masterpieces by Raphael, Luca Signorelli, Ghirlandaio, Raffaellino del Colle and Pomarancio.

Città di Castello is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts, offering the perfect opportunity for trekking, horse riding and cycling, or even simply to enjoy nature! And all this topped is off with delicious regional cuisine, including the prized black truffle.
