A hilly area with incredible landscapes and an ancient history, beautiful nature and charming villages whose origins are lost in the midst of time.
Umbria is a lush green region with breathtaking landscapes. Being among its perfectly preserved nature is a truly indescribable experience as you discover the unspoilt natural beauty of peaceful places such as the many ancient medieval roads, the dense forests or spiritual places linked to St Francis and Benedict.
From Gubbio to Orvieto, from the Marmore falls to Lake Trasimeno, the list of beautiful natural wonders to discover is endless: the ancient sepulchres of Monteleone and Terni, the Roman ruins of Bevagna, the enchanting town of Spello, one of Italy’s most beautiful old villages, the divine tranquillity of Assisi, the town of Perugia, rich in art and sweet delicacies.
Umbria also offers a varied flavourful cuisine: cured meats produced according to the ancient charcuterie tradition of Norcia, the delicious flavours of truffles and chocolate, the special cake of Gubbio and a great choice of tasty legumes, including the renowned lentils.
And of course its well preserved nature, the magnificent flowerbeds of Castelluccio di Norcia and as many as seven regional parks. A region to explore at a slow pace and in harmony with the local lifestyle, a special relationship between man and the environment which is difficult to find elsewhere.Close

All places with Nature Hospitality in Umbria
A village nestled in the Carpina Valley between the Tiber Valley and the Apennine ridge. The valley features a large drainage basin of great natural interest as it is rich in springs, dense woods of Turkey oaks and downy oaks which form the state-owned forest of Pietralunga.
In the town there is a well preserved picturesque medieval centre with typical alleys around the remains of the 8th-century Lombard fortress. Really, the town has even more ancient origins as evidenced by the discovery in Pietralunga of a prehistoric flute made from a human tibia and preserved at the Archaeological Museum of Perugia.
Other places worth visiting are the Parish church of Santa Maria, the Sanctuary of Madonna dei Rimedi and the Nature Museum of Ornithology of Candeleto, a protected oasis rich in wildlife.Close
