Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Monte S. Maria Tiberina, Italy your home away from home
Monte Santa Maria Tiberina is a tiny hill top town in the countryside of Umbria, Italy. The castle which stands at the town’s summit can be seen from many miles, but it is only when you come into the town that its true beauty comes shining through. Monte Santa Maria Tiberina is actually a single, twisting street which runs the entire way up the hill. Its spectacular location in the Umbrian countryside has meant that Monte Santa Maria Tiberina is a fantastic holiday destination for those wishing to escape to ‘real’ Italy, where tradition lives on strong and the scenery remains inspiring.
Things to do on holiday in Monte S. Maria Tiberina, Italy
Due to the size of the town, sightseeing tours will not take up the whole of your holidays in Mont Santa Maria Tiberina! The castle is well worth exploring from any self catering villa or apartment rental in Mont Santa Maria Tiberina or the surrounding area, which dates back to the 16th century and remains marvellously intact. The charming Church of St Mary is also well worth investigating, with its altar which dates back to the pre-Roman era.
Monte Santa Maria Tiberina is a gastronomic haven in the Umbrian countryside. The fantastic cheeses are renowned as being of the finest quality, and the local wines are certainly not to be missed.

Maria Tiberina accommodation, you could do a lot worse than to fill your shelves with local produce! The last day of August is a huge celebration of gastronomy, with the arrival of the Lippiano Fair, which is really a huge market.
