The Umbria region
UMBRIA - This small, centrally located region is often called the "green heart of Italy". Umbria is frequently compared to Toscana, as the two regions have a great many similarities - Umbria is a miniature Toscana, blessed with a wilder, rougher charm of its own. The region has many varying attractions for visitors: small villages with a medieval flair alongside significant cultural cities; soft, cultivated hills as well as steep mountain peaks such as the 2476-metre Monte Vettore; raging waterfalls and peaceful, dignified lakes such as Lago Trasimeno. The paths of many different cultures and peoples have crossed in Umbria down the centuries - Etruscans, Lombards, Romans and Byzantines - all of them leaving traces and ensuring a rich treasure of historical artefacts.
Anyone travelling to this region for the first time should make a point of visiting Perugia. The Umbrian capital with its beautiful medieval town centre is the home of one of Europe's oldest universities. And sweet-tooths won't be able to resist a trip to the nearby town of San Sisto and its Museo Storico della Perugina, a confectionary factory famed the world over for its nut chocolate. Another popular destination for all the region's visitors is of course Assisi, the birthplace of Saint Francis (1181-1226). The basilica in his honour houses gorgeous frescos by Giotto and Cimabue. Spoleto, with its magnificent Romanesque cathedral, is a very lively site for contemporary culture. Every June and July since 1958, the major "Festival dei Due Mondi" takes place here, an international cultural festival with a packed programme of music, theatre, ballet, art and cinema events. Citta della Pieve is the birthplace of the painter Pietro Vannucci, known as Perugino (1450-1523), and the modern painter Alberto Burri (1915-1995) was born in Citta di Castello. The town is home to two art collections dedicated to his works: the Fondazione Palazzo Albizzini and the Burri Collection, the latter housed in converted tobacco-curing barns in a former industrial complex - also a great example for successful preservation of significant industrial sites.
Other interesting places include Norcia, the home of the delicious black truffles, and Orvieto with its impressive cathedral, one of the most beautiful examples of Italian gothic architecture. ##In Orvieto, visitors can literally go underground and view parts of a wide-ranging "city below the city": Etruscan canals and cisterns, grottoes and walkways and the wells, shafts and furnaces of a once flourishing ceramics industry. And according to a study by the University of Kentucky, Todi, the birthplace of the mystical poet and Franciscan monk Jacopone da Todi (1230-1306), is currently the "most sustainable city in the world" and one of the best places to live. Umbria has even more to offer: small, pretty villages such as Panicale, Bevagna and Deruta, natural beauty such as the waterfalls of Marmore and the Monti Sibellini national park, a refuge for wolves and golden eagles. There are plenty of perfect routes for cycling tours as well, for example the 30-kilometre route through the rolling landscape of the "Terre delle Acque" between Acquasparta, Avigliano Umbro, Montecastrilli and the fossil forest of Dunarobba.
Parco Morino is in the vicinity of Todi, a charming medieval village 30 km from Perugia. It provides an excellent base for a holiday discovering the authentic Umbrian tradition with its history, culture and genuine cuisine. Along with the enchanting historical centre of Todi, in the surrounding area can be visited Spoleto, Assisi, Spello, the lake Trasimeno and the Marmore falls. It is situated in a panoramic position with a splendid view of the surrounding green hills.
