The Umbria region

Umbria is famous both for its forested hilly landscape and its rich art and architecture. Almost all the towns are located on hilltops, with gorgeous views over the surrounding woods, olive groves, and vineyards. For a first visit to Umbria, include Perugia for its Roman and late Medieval art and architecture and high-end boutique shopping, Assisi for its world famous Giotto frescoes and charming winding town streets, Spoleto for its early Medieval architecture, Orvieto for its one-of-a-kind well, Etruscan tombs and breath-taking cathedral, and Gubbio for its thoroughly medieval town centre.

To experience Umbrias ravishing nature and scenery, visit the Piano Grande in the Sibilline park near Norcia (where you can also sample some of Umbrias famous salami and truffles), the Marmore waterfalls and Valnerina, where white-water rafting is offered, and Lake Trasimeno with a ferry ride to the Isola Maggiore.

For a more in-depth taste of Umbria, dont miss the small gems of Todi, Citt di Castello, Spello, Montefalco, Trevi, Bevagna, and Amelia. All of these towns lend themselves to casual strolls through the streets, long cappuccino breaks in the main piazza, discoveries of tiny shops and boutiques, poking into the historic local church, and wonderful long meals of country Umbrian cooking.

Umbria also offers a rich tradition of wine and food: the whites produced around Lake Trasimeno at Tuoro and Passignano, Perugia and Torgiano and in the countryside near Orvieto are worth trying. The reds produced around Montefalco have gained an international reputation over the past few years, and the area is full of vineyards and cellars open to visitors for tours and tastings. Umbria also produces one of the worlds most sought-after olive oils, and most mills will offer tastings and sell directly to the public during pressing season.

Assisi

Brigolante is just minutes from Assisi, Umbria’s most famous town and one of its most beautiful. Known primarily as the birthplace of Saint Francis and home now to the Basilica of St. Francis, with its cycle of Giotto frescoes and the saint’s tomb, Assisi is not just a religious centre. Assisi has art and architecture which dates back to Roman times, including a pristinely preserved temple in the main square, and a progression of churches which serve as an example of each of the major historical architectural periods. Assisi is also dotted with charming little shops of local artists and artisans, and you can find local ceramics and artwork along side cafés and antique dealers. There are some wonderful restaurants which cater to locals and tourists alike where you can sample some of the local wine and oil and delicious Umbrian country cuisine, heavy on the pork and truffles. Assisi is especially inviting when decked out for the two main festivals of the year: Calendimaggio, a three day medieval festival in May, and the Feast Day of St Francis the first week of October.

Brigolante in located in the Park of Mount Subasio, which encompasses the town proper of Assisi and Spello and the surrounding foothills and slopes of Subasio. The park offers a variety of points of interest: tiny inhabited stone hamlets connected by stunning country roads and hiking trails, numerous isolated country churches and hermitages, some dating back to the time of St. Francis, and a chain of medieval bridges which criss-cross the Tescio river at various points along its ravine. The park is also home to a rich variety of wild animals and birds, including grey partridge, wild cat, squirrel, wood pigeon, magpie, jay, goldfinches and hoopoes, well as porcupine, badger, fox, weasel, beech-marten, and wild boar. Among birds of prey, in particular in the eastern section of the Park, there are buzzard, goshawk, and scops owl.
