About this location
The Lazio region
Umbria is known as the green heart of Italy, it has a spectacularly dramatic landscape where can be found lush green forests, rolling hills, sleepy little hill towns and peaceful valleys.
Among Umbria's most interesting towns are Orvieto, with its medieval charm and magnificent cathedral, Perugia with its cobblestone streets, Deruta just south of Perugia, considered by many to be the ceramics capital of Italy, Todi a beautiful medieval town, Assisi still as peaceful as when St. Francis lived there and Gubbio, the beautifully preserved hill town that pre-dates the Etruscan.
The city of Orvieto stands on a rocky outcrop in the centre of a green valley. A medieval city, extremely charming, rich in art and very impressive. The landscape, the architecture, the cathedral, the old town, the well of Saint Patrick, local crafts, a city not to be missed. It is also a city full of events … to name just one, for fans of good music and jazz, the Umbria winter jazz festival.
Bagnoregio, birthplace of St. Bonaventura, is found on the edge of the 'calanchi' connected to the picturesque medieval village of Cività di Bagnoregio by a long footbridge.
Lake Bolsena, is also only a short drive away, with its medieval towns on the lake's shore and its sandy beaches, ideal for a day of relaxation. The A1 motorway is about 15 minutes away making trips to both Rome and Florence possible in about 90 minutes.
It is in a strategic position, being on the borders of Tuscany, Lazio and Umbria, for visiting historical and cultural sites since within one hour of the area you can reach an impressive range of hilltop towns, Etruscan ruins areas of great natural beauty.
