Visiting the towns in Italy’s Umbria region. Assisi, with its famous chapel, Perugia, home to many festivals, Orvieto where great wines are made, and more.
First-time visitors to Italy tend to head straight to Rome, Florence or Venice and rightly so.
Once you have crossed these magnificent cities off your bucket list, go local by exploring Italy’s green heart –Umbria. This agricultural-rich region, within an hour and half north of Rome, will seduce any visitor with its cobblestoned medieval villages and its abundance of locally produced food and wine.
The pace of life is slower and more affordable, and you’ll come to understand why Italians linger over the pleasures of the table.
