The Valtiberina region sits on the border with Marche, Umbria and Emilia Romagna and is in an area of the Apennines where the sacred river Tevere has carved a valley out of the mountains. The first leg of our walk in Tuscany (25km in 7 hours) begins in this area full of churches, walled towns, convents and medieval castles which all speak volumes about the rich history of the region.
