Umbria is Tuscany’s lesser known cousin. Yet, some think she’s the more beautiful of the two.
This mountainous region in central Italy is home to olive groves, as well as world-class cities for tourists to visit. Perugia, the region’s capital, is best known for its prestigious University for Foreigners. The city glistens with architectural and artistic gems, from the Etruscan walls, to the Palazzo dei Priori, and Piazza IV Novembre.
Choosing which small Umbrian towns to visit can be a challenge for tourists visiting Italy; each offers something unique. Assisi, the town where Saint Francis was born, is one of the world’s great Christian destinations. Gubbio offers medieval and renaissance treasures. Orvieto tells the story of the Etruscan people. The town of Spoleto holds an incredible arts festival each summer. Every corner of Umbria holds a surprise.
