Anghiari owes its lasting fame beyond Ital to the fact that Leonardo was commissioned to paint a scene from the battle on at which the Florentines triumphed over the Milanese on one of the walls of the council chamber in Florence.

This is a must see if you are anywhere in the region of Anghiari. Staff were so nice and we un wittingly delayed them closing for lunch. We met the same lady later that day, in I think San Sepulchro.

More a series of text-heavy information boards (in Italian and English only?) accompanied by a limited number of exhibits, I nonetheless found this an interesting introduction to the Anghiari / Sansepolcro area. The geology and history plugged gaps in my schoolboy knowledge of Etruscan, Roman and subsequent eras – for example how several redirections of the River Tiber have impacted... More
