A generous land. A unique destination, ideal to restore both your body and soul. In a total land area of less than 3,300 square miles, Umbria region offers all the wonders of Italy at its finest. A treasure chest of beauties and pleasures to eyes and mouth. A place rich in spirituality, great art and craftsman tradition, not to mention its thousand-year cultural and historical heritage.
The “green heart of Italy”: a well-deserved title for a region located at the very centre of the boot, that boasts enchanting natural sceneries. Whether your passion is hiking, rafting or hot air ballooning, Umbria is a paradise for nature and sport enthusiasts. The Trasimeno Lake surrounded by gentle hills, the mountainous area of the Valnerina, the spectacular Cascata delle Marmore waterfall, dense forests, olive groves, lavenders and sunflowers fields: Umbria is perfect to live adventurous and intense experiences.
Nestling among these charming landscapes are numerous hamlets, offering unforgettable emotions: the Middle Ages and the Renaissance criss-cross through the streets of Città di Castello; the Etruscan town of Todi has a special charm, as well as Spello, Medieval jewel surrounded by Roman walls. Between art and spirituality, a visit to the town of Assisi and the places connected with the life of St. Francis, is a remarkable experience. The Festival of Two Worlds in the beautiful town of Spoleto is unmissable too.
At last but not least, Umbria is a small region with great tastes: the lentils of Castelluccio, the black truffle of Norcia, the chocolate excellence of Perugia and extra virgin olive oil from Spoleto. Less famous than nearby Tuscany, Umbria region is a gem to unveil.
