Gualdo Cattaneo in Umbria, Italy

Umbria

Cities and Towns in Umbria

Umbria is one of the most remarkably natural beautiful regions in Italy.  Located in the very centre of  Italy, it is approximately 1 hour north of Rome and 1 hour south of Florence.  It borders the regions of Lazio, Tuscany and Le Marche, making it an ideal region to base oneself for a holiday and enjoy day trips.  This region is also becoming a favorite holiday spot for visitors to Italy because it is remarkably less expensive than Tuscany and offers considerable more value for money, since Umbria is less of a touristic destination than Tuscany and in this sense we believe in some ways Umbria offers more value for money since the prices in Umbria are still very reasonable compared to Tuscany, its more frequently visited neighbor to the north.  

Assisi is perhaps the town most famous in Umbria, for it is where St. Francis of Assisi lived and one of the regions most important cathedrals and the Duomo of San Francesco is located there.  

The town, like many in the Umbria region is located overlooking a sea of green countryside dotted with vineyards, olive groves and farms. 

This patchwork quilt of green countryside, the lush valleys between high hills make for naturally beautiful geography, some of the most pristine and dramatic in Italy.  

Perugia, is the capital of the region and is home to one of Italy's largest Universities for foreign students called 'Universita' per Stranieri' and is located about 30 minutes north of Assisi.

Great places for making a holiday in Umbria include:

Orvieto 
Assisi
Trevi
Montefalco
Spoleto
Lago Trasimeno
Bevagna
