The helpful tourist office is at Via Matteotti 8, just off the main piazza (tel./fax 0575-740-536; www.comune.sansepolcro.ar.it; daily 9am-1pm and 3:30-7pm).
On the second Sunday in September, the Palio della Balestra allows Sansepolcro a crossbow rematch with its traditional rivals from Gubbio (Umbria). This medieval test of archery skill is highlighted with a display from Sansepolcro's famous sbandieratori (flag tossers). They perform their medieval act of juggling colorful banners dressed in Renaissance costumes lifted straight from Piero paintings. Call tel. 0575-75-827, or visit www.balestrierisansepolcro.it for more info. Don't miss the markets on Tuesday and Saturday mornings, and the excellent "high quality" market every third Saturday of the month.
