The small region of Umbria is a place where good food, great landscapes and a quiet pace of life are the recipe for a perfect holiday. The various little villages scattered across the region all have their own distinctive charm. Most of them built on hilltops and ridges, they all complement this rustic, green heart of Italy.

The sheer beauty and pastoral tranquillity of Umbria is unparalleled across Italy. For Umbrians, life is all about great food and good company, and visitors to the region will never be short of opportunities to experience both.
   Start out in the regional capital of Perugia. The largest city in Umbria, Perugia effortlessly maintains the cosy charm and personal feel that is guaranteed to relax all your senses. Wander around old-fashioned streets and gaze at beautiful buildings like the Palazzo dei Priori and the cathedral, both of which can be found at the Piazza IV Novembre. Heading out to explore the Umbrian countryside, you’ll come across the most magnificent villages, no matter which direction you set off towards. East of Perugia, you’ll find the village of Assisi. The birthplace of one of the most venerated religious figures in Christianity, St Francis, the village is today the home of a majestic basilica, built in his honour in the 13###sup/sup### century. Amazing fresco paintings and beautiful art adorn the building and visitors can marvel at this as well as the nearby cathedral in this quaint little village. South of the capital you’ll find Spoleto, a town that has been the host to the cultural Spoleto Festival for the past 60 years. In Umbria you’re never far from something truly wonderful, and, fortunately, you’re also never far from places that serve delicious local dishes. The village of Norcia is famous for its prosciutto ham and porchetta, which are perfect starters for dinner. Follow the antipasti by sampling the Umbrian signature dish, the tatufi neri or bianchetti — delicious pasta sauce with black or white truffles. Make sure to sip a glass of local wine as the setting sun paints the sky in an amber hue over the hills.
