Umbria

Umbria, somewhat overshadowed in the past by its famous neighbor, Tuscany, is coming into a popularity of its own. The combination of elements makes Umbria the ideal place for the traveler who is looking for hidden artistic treasures off the beaten track, and for beautiful, pastoral countryside. This is a land of harmony, which reveals marvelous natural landscapes, rich green hills and strong colors. The traveler will never forget the immense fields of sunflowers and olive trees which cover entire hillsides. History and art are everywhere in Umbria. Mediaeval Perugia, the region's capital, has wonderful architecture and artifacts. Charming Todi and Gubbio have many Romanesque Churches and civic palaces. Spoleto is famous for its summer arts festival. Assisi, home of the famous saint, contains the Basilica de San Francesco, frescoed in part by Giotto. Orvieta has one of Italy's finest Romanesque-Gothic Cathedrals. The medieval villages are one of the most exciting aspects of Umbria, set high on hilltops, they are just waiting to be explored. The local wine and cuisine are excellent as well. Dishes with truffles and mushrooms are the quintessence of the Umbrian specialties.
