Citta Della Pieve

Cities and Towns in Umbria

 

A splendid medieval town, in the shape of an eagle. This is Città della Pieve, just a few kilometers from Perugia, and inhabited since the time of the Etruscans. In the center of the town, great part of which is enclosed within a thick defence wall, lies the cathedral dedicated to Saints Gervasio and Protasio. This is the church or "Pieve" after which the town was named.
 
It is inside Citta della Pieve's various houses of worship that the works of two great local artists can be seen - artists known by the names of Perugino and Pomarancio. In the oratory of Santa Maria dei Bianchi there is a splendid fresco by Perugino, completed in 1504, in which the Adoration of the Magi is depicted, complete with backdrop of what, at that time, was a decidedly contemporary Città della Pieve.
 
The 14th century Castle is situated just a few steps away from the Church of San Francesco, now known as the Sanctuary of the Madonna of Fatima, in which to admire a stunning Pentecost by Pomerancio. Not to be missed: the 38meter high Torre del Pubblico, and the Churches of Santa Maria delle Mercede and of Sant'Agostino.
 
In the month of August, Città della Pieve hosts a centuries old event: that of the Palio dei Terzieri. This re-enactment of a bull hunt is preceded by a historic parade through the town center involving some seven hundred participants, all dressed in elaborate medieval costume.

Client Testimonials

Dear Guiseppe and Jesse,
We just returned from our most wonderful vacation to Italy and wanted to first thank you for putting together such a wonderful trip, and second to provide some feedback for the future.

Hotels
1. Hotel Sovestro in San Gimignano was wonderful. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made the first portion of our journey very stress free. They made us feel like we were part of their family. I would recommend it to anyone and would specifically ask for it if we were to make a return visit.

2. Hotel La Baia in Monterosso was nice and it's location was very good especially for us older folks humping luggage from/to the train station.

3. Hotel Lucchesi in Florence- what can I say expect FANTASTIC. The rooftop view at sunset is well worth it. Again very friendly and helpful staff. Would recommend it to everyone.

Wine Tour
Money well spent. We had a great time overall. The driver Mario was OUTSTANDING. He had lots of local knowledge as well as about winemaking. USE HIM AGAIN!!!

The various wineries we visited on tour:
Altesino- fantastic and they were not cheap on their pouring. Great experience.
Azienda Agricola Patrizia Cencion Sloaria- Again a great tour by one of the owner's daughters. We felt like we were the only thing on their mind although there were other customers there. A great way to complete the day.

Again we had a fantastic time and are very appreciative of everything you booked for us. We wish you continued success and if our travels should bring us back to Italy, we know who to call.
