In Umbria you learn to know the meaning of beauty. Umbria is the heart of Italy, but not only for its geographical position. The region’s wealth of natural and artistic wonders seems almost inexhaustible.
Travelling the roads of Umbria is a journey full of surprises, continuously suspended between the signs of a
well-preserved past and a vocation for the future. Umbria today, reinventing itself fashionable but without overdoing it, has much to offer visitors: sport, culture, museums and musical events of international renown. Immersed in an atmosphere of palpable harmony, every stretch of land and every city has its own unique identity, the result of millennia of civilisation that have left dense layers of memory and timeless masterpieces throughout the land: Umbrian, Etruscan, and Roman first period, the Middle Ages, and then the Renaissance.
Umbria has a true vocation for beauty.
Umbria has everything - and a lot more: art, culture and entertainment that the region has to offer and nearly every day, there are events and appointments that are not to be missed.
These are great events that are famous the world over, starting with Umbria Jazz in its three versions: the winter edition in Orvieto, the Easter edition in Terni dedicated to gospel and soul music, and the summer classic in Perugia, held in July, which hosts the top stars of the current music scene.
And then there’s the Spoleto Festival the TodiArteFestival .
Theatre and music are intense activities here; each city has its own theatre season.
Last but not least are the historic and folklore commemorations: each city has its own and the most famous are the Quintana in Foligno, the Gaite in Bevagna, the Palio dei Terzieri in Città della Pieve and the Balestra in Gubbio. And at Christmas and Easter, there is also a host of ceremonies and sacred representations.
