Trip to Sansepolcro, a small and charming town in Tuscany, near Arezzo, and home of the artist Piero della Francesca. The town has many ancient palaces and many churches in different styles, from Gothic to Roman, and a well preserved city wall enclosing the entire downtown.
The nice central square "Piazza delle Torre di Berta" in Sansepolcro's downtown.
A garden dedicated to Piero della Francesca, an artist who has lived here. There is also a nice museum dedicated to him.
Hiking in the town is very pleasant
A monument dedicated to Luca Pacioli
