Undiscovered Umbria : The Green Heart of Italy
Umbria, bordering Tuscany to its west, is a rugged, stunning, and largely undiscovered region with a unique blend of charming hill towns, prominent mountains and rolling countryside. Visit the town of Assisi, sitting in the shadow of Monte Subasio and world-famous for St. Francis.
Spello, is renowned for its breathtaking Festival of Infiorata, in which teams of people working to create elaborate sidewalk flower displays for the Corpus Domini feast. Perugia, the provincial capital of this region, is world-famous for its chocolate. Indeed, Umbria presents the traveler with endless possibilities to explore: from undiscovered Norcia and the delights of wild boar products to Spoleto with its rich culture and Festival dei Due Mondi (Festival of the Two Worlds); from Orvieto rising to the dizzying heights of its Duomo to the ancient and well-preserved Roman ruins of Carsulae.
