Tuscany trekking in the footsteps of Piero della Francesca 2021
At the foot of the green hills of Tuscan Apennines surround Sansepolcro, the birthplace of Piero Della Francesca, we find these views often immortalized in the background of his works. The areas of naturalistic value in the surroundings are ideal for trekking within everyone’s reach, including the Parco dei Monti Rognosi and the Alpe della Luna Nature Reserve up to the enchanting trek close to Monterchi, a Tuscan village perched on a hill, famous in the world to preserve the Madonna del Parto by Piero della Francesca.
