Citta di Castello, Umbria

Città di Castello is an enchanting city located in northern Umbria, bordering the beautiful region of Tuscany. The bustling streets of Città di Castello are lined with grand palaces from a bygone era and are encircled in city walls that date back to the Renaissance.  

Sitting in the heart of the historic centre of Città di Castello lies Hotel Tiferno, a four star boutique hotel housed in a former 17th century monastery. Hotel Tiferno is very much part of the city’s heritage, as it’s been a reputed hotel in the city since 1895.  

Città di Castello was the birthplace of the 20th century Italian abstract artist Alberto Burri. You can visit many cultural attractions in Città di Castello, including the Alberto Burri Museum at the Palazzo Albizzini, which boasts forty years of the artist’s paintings and sculptures. 

In the environs of Città di Castello you will discover beautiful Umbrian landscapes of arable farmland, and the rolling hills of the Upper Tiber Valley, which are worthy of being immortalized in their own scenic paintings.  

You can also visit the Ex Seccatoi del Tabacco, another gallery that pays homage to Alberto Burri located within an old tobacco drying factory. Brimming with many historic and artistic treasures from the Umbrian region, Hotel Tiferno invites you to be immersed in history during your cultural holiday in Città di Castello.
