Umbria is known as the green heart of Italy. Rightly so because everywhere you look in this small region between both coasts you’ll find rolling hills, mountains and woodlands with a distinct Medieval charm.
The lively walled hill town of Perugia, known for its chocolate and chocolate festival is the region’s capital. You might also want to check out Spoleto and its music festival, Orvieto, Todi, and Deruta for its well known ceramics. All of these destinations are well preserved medieval towns.
Throughout the region you will come across hidden renaissance art treasure and delight in Umbria’s cuisine. Black truffle, lentils and of course, chocolate are some of the region’s prized specialties. And be sure to try the well know white Oriveto wines.
