Luxury Travel Umbria
Umbria Italy’s “green heart”!
Umbria has a coronet of intimate and easily visited hill-towns in the center of Italy. You will love Etruscan sites and medieval hill towns: Perugia, Assisi, Orvieto, Gubbio, Todi, Spoleto and Norcia. Each has enough to keep you busy for a day or more, and none is more than a few miles from the next, making Umbria manageable and straightforward to explore.
Umbria is a region where the food, wine, art, culture and architecture are the equal of any in Italy. Norcia, with its truffles, hams and cheeses, for example, is a gastronomic centre par excellence; Orvieto’s Duomo is one of the country’s finest cathedrals; Spoleto’s summer festival is one of Europe’s major cultural events; and Assisi’s majestic Basilica di San Francesco contains frescoes by Giotto and others that mark a turning point in the history of Western art. A little less expensive than neighboring Tuscany, Umbria is becoming more popular as a tourist destination.
