Region

It is easy to fall in love with Umbria, it’s picturesque medieval villages, calm pace of life and authentic rural atmosphere. A rich Roman and Etruscan cultural and historical heritage, beautiful landscapes and gastronomical traditions make the Umbrian region a very rewarding place to explore. At the same time, however, you are unlikely to run into crowds of travelers. This green heart of Italy with its olive groves, vineyards and cypress-topped hills as well as high mountain landscapes and forests has remained surprisingly untouched by mass tourism.

Armin van Buuren Sunny Days in Umbria a Montefalco:

 

  • Pay a visit to one of the well-preserved hill-towns like Umbria’s capital Perugia, medieval and pink-stoned Assisi, Gubbio, Spoleto, Todi or Orvieto. Each has enough to keep you busy for a day or more
  • Also well worth a visit: the charming and more intimate smaller centres such as Montefalco, Bevagna, Spello, nearby Montone and Citta di Castello.
  • Enjoy day-trips to bordering Tuscany and visit Arezzo, Cortona, Montepulciano, Florence or Siena – or head out for Le Marche for a day at the beach or to explore Urbino, Pesaro, Fano, Ancona or Macerata.
  • Experience outdoor activities like hiking, trekking, cycling, mountain biking, horseback riding and microlight flying – all can be done directly from the house or just around the corner. Maps of signed walking trails and route directions are available.
  • Improve your golf game – the Antognolla Golf Course designed by Robert Trent Jones takes you less than 1 hour by car.
  • Walkers and outdoor enthusiasts, or drivers wanting a scenic hour or so, should look at the Parco Regionale del Monte Cucco or at the Parco Nazional dei Monti Sibillini with the celebrated wildflowers that cover the Piano Grande late May or early June
  • learn to cook or visit one of the famous wine producers and enjoy tastings of Umbria’s very own Sagrantino wine. Last weekend in May all wineries from Caprai, Antonelli and Lungarotti to the lesser known smaller ‘cantinas’ are open to the public (Cantine Aperte)
  • Have a look at one of the many weekly markets in the area and buy some pecorino cheese or a sandwich with porchetta (savory pork roast)

and not to be missed:

  • It’s fun to cook your own meals with the excellent ingredients you can buy, but be sure to pay also a visit to the local trattorias and family run restaurants – you’ll never be disappointed
  • Try one of the open-air concerts of the Spoleto Festival (June) or Umbria Jazz (early July) or meet the locals and enjoy local food during the numerous costumed and seasonal festas.
