If you're planning a holiday in Umbria, commonly referred to as the green heart of Italy, an agriturismo or farmhouse is the perfect accommodation for getting the most from your vacation in Umbria.
Endowed with natural resources and suggestive...
landscapes, Umbria is one of the most visited tourist destinations in Italy: the Cascata delle Marmore (Marmore falls) and Lake Trasimeno (where the Trasimeno Blues takes place every year) are just a few of the most interesting sites to visit in this region of Italy.
There're lots of charming places to see if you go discovering Umbria landscape, such as medieval hill towns, where ancient traditions and local culture are still preserved. We strongly suggest you take a visit to Gubbio, Norcia (especially if you want to spend a wine-and-food holiday in Umbria: Norcia is in fact well-known for its wonderful black truffle) and Orvieto, an Etruscan city where you may visit, through guided tours, its hidden and secrets labyrinth of tunnels and caves that lie beneath the surface.
One of the most popular tourist destinations in Umbria is the Basilica of St Francis of Assisi, where many famous (and less famous) painters' works are still preserved, even if the most important decorations are the series of frescoes ascribed to the young Giotto. If art and spirituality is what you're looking for during your holiday in Umbria, don't miss out to visit the Basilica of St Francis.
If you're keen on cooking and music instead, don't miss out to take part in some of the most interesting events taking place in Perugia, Umbria Jazz and Eurochocolate.
