The Niccone Valley is where Tuscany meets Umbria. The northern valley is mainly in Tuscany, topped by five ancient castles or fortified villages; all standing opposite their Umbrian counterparts that lie on the hills of the southern valley and all built over a 1,000 year period of Papal and Renaissance history. Today, the 11 miles of the Niccone valley, which includes the Val di Pierle, is dotted with restored private farmhouses, luxury villas and apartments, all popular with discerning visitors. The villages of Lisciano Niccone, in Umbria and Mercatale di Cortona, in Tuscany sit at the western most extreme of this wide valley.
