Jul 27th, 2014 | author Antonella Bazzoli | posted in Take the road less traveled

Umbria and the surrounding countryside offers a magnificent opportunity to get to know the rich history of the region, to experience first-hand the symbolism that is contained in the historic structures, many of which date back to Medieval times,  and to discover the magic of the region for yourself.

In Umbria you can feel the magic atmosphere of medieval hilltowns and Etruscan cities. You can visit well-preserved Romanesque churches and Gothic cathedrals,  you can enter public buildings dating back to the XIII century…

Umbria was a place of sieges and conquests, a land inhabited by hermits and knights Templar, by saints and poets, by famous painters and skilled craftsmen…

Visiting Umbria means discovering a green territory – small geographically but culturally rich – full of Etruscan and Roman remains, famous for its medieval and renaissance works of art,  enriched by protected natural parks …

We offer guided tours, if you are interested, but we also provide what we hope to be useful information for those who want to get “off the beaten path” and explore.
