Our region of Umbria, “Italy’s green heart” – located right in the center of Italy – entices visitors with an immeasurable array of wondrous medieval hilltowns, many of them still “undiscovered.”
When to come? The Umbrian calendar is rich: festivals and folklore fill the Umbrian year. Whenever you come, we’ll help you join “the locals” in celebrations.
Food and wine are an integral part of Italian life and culture: while in Umbria, join in a cooking class, savor a buonissimo feast with a farm family, visit the vineyards and enjoy wine-tastings and olive-oil tastings in the medieval hilltowns.
Nearby regions entice, too: take time to explore the Marches to the east, Abruzzo to the southeast, northern Latium to the southwest, southern Tuscany just north of us. Hop on a train to Rome or Florence: each of them just over two hours away. Glad to help you plan adventures to other regions, sharing news on our own favorite “gems.”
