Everchanging, untouched landscapes in the green of winding valleys, Umbria never fails to amaze.
Umbria region is exquisite, mystical, peaceful, and best of all, unspoiled. Centrally located, in less two hours visitors can reach Rome or Florence, this landlocked region of Italy is often referred to as the green heart of the Country and it is an especially verdant region of mountains, rolling green hills, forests, tumbling rivers, lush farming land, hiking trails, vineyards, and awe inspiring and time transporting views.
Out of Umbria come extraordinary and highly regarded wines, both red and white, olive oils, whole grains, exquisite truffles, first rate prosciutto, sausages and other pork products, honeys, cheeses – and much more. Umbria’s countryside is at its best in May, garlanded with flowers and spring green, and blessed with weather that is already balmy. Upland Norcia escapes the heat that can make most of the region’s other towns hard to visit in July and August. Unmissable are festivals and holidays, especially in Assisi (Easter is particularly felt by Italians), and off season: with so many indoor cultural attractions – galleries, churches, museums – and only locals in the restaurants, the region can be a joy to explore at this time of year.
Ever-changing, untouched landscapes in the green of winding valleys make Umbria a region that will never fail to amaze. At the heart of the boot, it is the only region with no coastline and it is a complete region, so centrally located to constitute the perfect option for those who want to get the best of Italy in once
