Anghiari is one of Italy’s best kept secrets. Sitting high above the Valtiberina Valley is the beautiful and unspoiled medieval village which is approached by one of the longest straightest roads I’ve ever seen.
The lovely thing about this town is it is still genuine and the locals who live here are often seen sitting and chatting away in the towns various bars. It has 3 butchers here, 3 grocers, 4 bars and a few shops including the famous Busatti Linen shop.
The local theatre is very quaint and pretty and holds regular events varying from classical music to contemporary dance.
There are many little churches all individual and beautiful and there is of course the museum.
The annual Palio is held every year on 29th June where the locals can be seen parading and riding on horses in medieval costumes. There are also many food festivals (Sagra) including the Bringoli festival (a thick hand- made spaghetti)
Florence is just over an hour drive away but you can also catch the train from Arezzo.
