The Umbria region
The Upper Tiber Valley or "Valtiberina" is a wonderful part of Italy still very unspoilt and very Italian. Umbria has an array of wonderful places to visit with towns such as Perugia and Citta di Castello, and more wonderful hilltop villages and towns then you can possibly visit. Being right on the Tuscan, Umbrian border it is ideally situated for visiting both of these areas.
The Upper Tiber Valley is historically quite a wealthy area through tobacco farming and crafts such as carpentry for example and hence the towns are very well preserved and looked after. From May to November there are an array of festivals happening in the region, which is still very traditional and proud of its roots. During the spring and summer there are flower festivals and music festivals throughout the region and in October and November the autumn festivals with local produce such as wild boar, porcini mushrooms and truffles.
