Umbria, Where You Slow Down and Savor Everything; Donnie Sexton; GoNOMAD

Italy – Assisi, the Basilica of San Francesco and Other Franciscan Sites

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.
