Few regions can give such intense emotions as Umbria. Exploring this land of different characters and spirits is like entering a dimension in which suggestive spirituality, artistic heritage and the quality of the natural environmental melt into harmonious perfection. Surrounding oneself by the peace of the countryside, letting oneself be drawn into the soft colours of a landscape that seems to belong to a Renaissance painting is like sharing the secret rhythm of a world in which humans and the quality of human life make one common value.
An ancient land that still releases vital energies that awaken its visitors, arousing their curiosity, opening their minds and their hearts. An experience in discovering the art of living, both through places of spirituality, and the authentic expression of a culture with a wealth of knowledge and flavours.
Walking, cycling or riding are the best ways to become truly familiar with the areas to be visited. But the most important thing is to be in the right spirit, to “keep your eyes open”, to be ready to meet people, to meet yourselves and the land you are travelling through.
