Discover the Countryside of Umbria on Walking Tours of Italy
Umbria is a region in Central Italy that is renowned for its green, rolling hills. While Umbria has no coastline, it is home to Lake Trasimeno, the River Tiber, and the cascading Marmore Falls; the tallest manmade waterfall in the world! Umbria boasts many lovely cities that are a must-see when you travel to Italy, such as Assisi, and the region’s capital, Perugia. However, many Umbrian towns are much smaller, like Torgiano which is famous for its olive oil museum, and Deruta, known for its ceramics.
Walk the Umbria Countryside with an Italy Holiday Tour
But most of all, Umbria is known for its gorgeous countryside, and the best way to see the natural beauty of the region is to take a walking tour of Italy. The 70km walk from Assisi to Spoleto is highly recommended, as there is stunning scenery to enjoy on the way. When you reach the end, there’s a real treat in store in Spoleto, which is a fantastic destination. There is much to do here, including a visit to the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta, the Roman theatre, and the city museum in the Palazzo della Signoria.
