‘Umbria is often overlooked in favour of its more famous neighbour, Tuscany, but unfairly so. It is one of Italy’s hidden gems and is home to a huge variety of beautiful cities, amazing landscapes and, of course, exquisite Italian food.’ (The Telegraph)
A mountainous region in the heart of Italy, Umbria offers a picturesque landscape of rolling hills dotted with cobalt lakes and traditional villages. Cities like Perugia and Assisi offer medieval architecture and art museums to rival anything in Tuscany, while lush vineyards offer rustic appeal. Thousands of visitors make the pilgrimage to Assisi to honour St Francis every year, and this traditional region’s villages often bustle with festivals and markets. Many of Umbria’s old towns incorporate remnants of Etruscan and Roman settlements with a timeless atmosphere.
Umbria has become the holiday destination of choice for foodies, known for its truffles, olives and wine but its mountains and lakes also make it an exciting destination for those seeking outdoor adventure. Trek through pine forests to the summit of Mount Sibillini or go sailing on the vast waters of Lake Trasimeno.
