The Umbria region

Welcome to the Castello di Campello for Italian cultural tourism at its best. It sits on a hillside in the midst of the "Green Heart of Umbria" and neighboring, beautiful Spoleto, home to some of the greatest art of the Italian Renaissance, and in particular,to the magnificent frescoes in its Cathedral painted by Fra Filippo Lippi. Of course, Spoleto is known for the Spoleta Festival of Arts, Music and Opera. You also will be near to so many other extraordinary towns, filled with artistic treasures, that you will want to spend not a week, but a season.

Do not miss Spello, Todi, Narni, Perugia,and the not faraway Tuscan towns of Montepulciano, Montalcino, and even Siena. And when art gives way to more Epicurian desires, you are in the region of some Italy's and the world's greatest wines and foods. You won't want to miss the various truffles in season at various times of the year. In Spoleto, try the rstaurant "Il Tartufo"; in Siena, "La Taverna San Giuseppe", and right in Campello, the charming "Le Casaline" which you will want to visit many times. When you are sated, you will enjoy hiking, biking,and horse-riding in some of the most splendid countryside imaginable.

Spoleto is best known for the world famous Spoleto Festival which takes place every year from mid-June to the late July. One of the major Italian and international festivals, it offers the best in art music, and theatre. Itwas the inspiration for the Charleston,South Carolina, carrying the same name. Umbria’s Festival is a meeting point for Italian, American, and European cultures.

Campello is not far from Assissi, an renowned tourist attraction known for its most famous citizen, St. Francis, proclaimed a saint in 1228, founder of the Franciscan order and patron saint of Italy.It is also know for its famous frescoed Cathedral, and its excellent antique “Mercato”
