Besides focusing on the famous battle of Anghiari between the Milanese and the Florentinese this museum explains the long history of the city and the importance of the Tiber River over thousands of years. Lots of steps make this visit difficult for some people

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.
