UMBRIA  "The green heart of Italy"
The cities seem to have remained the same since the Middle Ages: dormant old buildings, winding streets, small squares where shops present local...

crafts from Umbria (Deruta pottery, lace from Lake Trasimeno...).
Assisi is one of the most important centers of Christianity. At Orvieto, the cathedral has one of the most beautiful facades in Italy and contains splendid frescoes by Luca Signorelli.
It is also worth visiting Umbria for its cuisine: olive oil, game, meats, cheese, lentils, fish from the local lakes... Umbria ensuring peace and quiet and authenticity.

The medieval city of Assisi, birthplace of St. Francis, founder of the homonymous Religious Order of the Franciscans, was added to the UNESCO  World Heritage List in 2000.
In particular, the Basilica of St. Francis brings together a number of masterpieces of creative human genius, and is an extraordinary example of the type of architectonic complexity that has significantly influenced the development of art and architecture.
Cimabue, Giotto, the Lorenzetti brothers, Simone Martini – indeed the greatest artists of the 14th Century, have painted frescoes on the walls and ceilings of the Basilica. The site is an obligatory destination for many, believers and non-believers alike, who appreciate the Franciscan message.
Assisi is a very welcoming community and expresses the best of the hospitable Italian spirit. Additionally, the surrounding territory, stretching all the way to the region’s capital, Perugia, offers an infinite array of natural, historic and enogastronomic attractions.

Lifted by a hill above a valley patterned with fields, where the Tiber River runs swift and clear, Perugia is Umbria's petite and immediately likeable capital. Its centro storico (historic centre) rises in a helter-skelter of cobbled alleys, arched stairways and piazzas framed by magnificent palazzi (mansions). History seeps through every shadowy corner of these streets and an aimless wander through them can feel like time travel. This city is already well renomated about its regional food!!!!

Orvieto is an old town located on a tufa outcrop 300 feet above the gorgeous Paglia valley below. The city is mostly known for its Duomo (one of the most architecturally important in Europe), for its Etruscan roots and for the museums where one finds collections and displays that range over 2500 years of history.
Walking through Orvieto’s charming, narrow alleys and small squares, visiting the underground town with its old oil mill, Etruscan cisterns and wine cellars your tour will be a very memorable experience, perfect for reflecting over while you enjoy an Umbrian meal and a glass (or two!) of Orvieto Classico.

TRASIMENO LAKE… is located in the green heart of Umbria,but it is bordered to the north by the Tuscan, amidst beds of reeds and charming white water lilies.  It’s a true natural paradise home to wild ducks, cormorants, kites and kingfishers.  Beyond the downward slope, gentle hills form the backdrop to the lake, along with sporadic woods and sunflower and corn fields, vineyards and olive groves.  Agriculture here is still carried out following traditional techniques.  Several town are located on Lake Trasimeno.  Some of them directly face the lake while others are nearby and are affected by the charm and attraction of this sheet of water.

For example, Castiglione del Lago is located on a limestone promontory, above the ruins of several Etruscan tombs.  The castle can also be admired from here, as well as the medieval walls of Palazzo Ducale, which is connected by a local pathway to Rocca del Leone fortress, one of the most important examples of Umbrian military architecture.
