The Umbria region

CANONICA is often referred to as the Beverly Hills of Todi thanks to it southerly exposure, wonderful views and proximity to many historic sites.

TODI, according to legend was built by Hercules, grew as a border city (Todi comes from Tutere = border) of the Etruscan dominions and was finally conquered by the Romans in 217BC.

The city flourished in the 12th and 13th centuries as a 40,000 inhabitants powerful and independent Comune. It was annexed to the Papal States in 1367 and remained part of the Church dominion until the unification of Italy in 1861.
