Umbria holidays

Umbria is often viewed as Tuscany’s sister, in many ways it mimics Tuscany’s delights, but also has its own distinct character. Umbria, known as ‘the green heart of Italy’ sits right in the middle of the country.

It’s about half the size of Tuscany, which means most of the region can easily be explored. Umbria is serene, understated, breathtakingly beautiful, and most importantly, unspoiled. It has long lived in the shadow of Tuscany, but visitors are discovering its charms and learning that a holiday in Umbria is not to be missed.

The landscape is littered with rolling hills, streams, valleys, olive groves and woodland. Visitors report there being a special quality of light that illuminates the horizon. Umbria is also famous for being the birthplace of the saints, which further contributes to its magical appeal.

This region is known for its olive oil, truffles, fine cured meat and full bodied wine. There are plenty of gorgeous hill towns to visit such as Assisi, Orvieto and Perugia, as well as quaint villages like Trevi, Spello and Montefalco. What are you waiting for?
