Umbria is in the center of Italy between Florence and Rome and called the green heart of Italy. This enchanting, typical Italian region offers an excellent mix of nature, art and culture. Adding to this you will soon after your arrival enjoy the excellent local food and wines.
Umbria has many hilltowns, vineyards and a beautiful countryside full of olive trees growing on the surrounding hills. Umbria is home to Spoleto, Assisi, Perugia, Lake Trasimeno, Bevagna, Norcia and the well known wine village of Monte Falco.
The Umbria region has a very pleasant sunny climate from April until October with the summer months of July and August being particularly warm. Many festivals and local sagra celebrations take place during the spring and summer season. For example the famous art and wine festival of Spoleto, Umbrian Jazz in Perugia, the truffle celebration in Scheggino, the medieval festival in Narni, the horse race of Foligno and the traditional archery contest of Bevagna.
Umbria has many unspoiled natural attractions like the Monte Subasio, the Sibillini national parc, the Valnerina valley
The landscape makes it excellent for hiking, fishing, rafting, ski-ing, swimming, caving, climbing, horse riding, cycling, mountain biking and excursions.
Maybe the best thing about Umbria is the lack of mass tourism which makes this unique region one of the most enjoyable and relaxing in Italy!
Spoleto is often being called the art city of Italy. Although Spoletini are quite modest about their cultural heritage they have plenty of reasons to be proud on their city, its history, the well kept monuments and its beautiful unspoiled surroundings.
Spoleto is a walled hill town and one of the largest towns in southern Umbria. Spoleto has Etruscan, Roman and medieval sites. Above Spoleto is the medieval Rocca castle and spanning the deep gorge to one side of the Rocca is Spoleto's most famous sight, il Ponte delle Torri or Bridge of Towers, an ancient aquaduct which can be walked over. On the other side starts the sacred forest which has been a sanctuary for wildlife from roman times onwards. It was once visited by San Francesco on his pilgrimmage to Rome.
The world famous ART festival dei due mondi, two worlds festival, is held in Spoleto in late June through early July. Vini nel mondo is a three days wine festival that attracts many Italians from all around the region for testing local wines, enjoying local food and listening to concerts.
Spoleto is very well connected to Rome, Perugia and Florence by railway and road. Rome is only a 2 hour drive or fifteen minutes less by train! Perugia and Trasimeno lake is a pleasant one hour drive and Florence can be a nice one or two days excursion. The Adriatic coast is a 2 hour drive through the mountains and in the winter the ski slopes can be reached in just over one hour.
