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.
The Ideal City
At the beginning of the 90's, the University of Kentucky, based on a series of qualitative factors, elected Todi the “Ideal City”, a place in which nature and man, history and tradition combined to a point of world-wide excellence. Todi was unexpectedly chosen as the most livable city in the world.

"Beautiful villa in one of the most magnificent places in Italy!"
After having a few difficulties in finding Casa Canonica (there is a 'Canonica' the other side of Orvieto) we were thrilled with the accommodation we had booked. The views were panoramic and took in most of what the beautiful valleys around Todi have to offer - this is a view you will not tire of! Casa Canonica is a new house but built in a traditional style and in a way to maximise the setting and the view. The caretakers, Marcello and Fanny were wonderful in their welcome and attention to detail - it was so nice to receive such a warm welcome from them! We actually found it difficult to wander too far from the house as it was so beautiful. We also enjoyed using the pool each day, even though the weather wasn't that hot! Todi was our pick of the three local hilled towns (Orvieto, Spoleto and Todi) and we enjoyed heading up there for walks, coffee, lunch or dinner! Casa Canonica is a place that we will definitely come back to - so quiet, so beautiful and so relaxing! We would definitely recommend this accommodation to people who are looking for a relaxing holiday in a beautiful setting.
