Known as the Green Heart of Italy, Umbria is best characterized by verdant rolling hills, fields of yellow sunflowers, the smoky flavor of truffles, and the tang of sheep's milk cheese. It is both refined and wild. A land of Etruscan and medieval origins, Umbria is steeped in spirituality: the hill town of Assisi, birthplace of St. Francis, is considered the center of the Franciscan monastic movement. Perugia, Umbria's capital, hosts a world famous jazz festival, while Gubbio puts on its very own annual pagan celebration. Spoleto, Orvieto, and Urbino are also gems of the region. Perugia's Buitoni produces thirteen percent of Italy's pasta. It's no surprise, then, that the pasta in this region is delectable, especially the umbricelli, a specialty of Northern Umbria. Perugia's other delicacies include bruschetta, farro soup, pork dishes, wild pigeon, and squab. As for truffles, dogs or pigs sniff out these precious mushrooms in the area around Norcia and Spoleto. The cuisine of Southern Umbria highlights the subtle combination of truffles, olive oil, cheese, and homemade pasta. The white wine of Orvieto is the region's most famous.

Known for its beauty and artistic flair, Northern Umbria is similar to its neighbor, Tuscany, but has fewer tourists. Originally settled by the Umbrii tribe, Northern Umbria is made up by modern towns and cities built upon Etruscan and Medieval foundations. Visitors to our Northern Umbria villas will discover that the region is renowned for festivals, truffles, and cheeses. Perugia, the largest and wealthiest city in the province, is famous for its chocolate, Perugina. Chocolate lovers interested in our Umbria rentals should take note: the Eurochocolate Festival is held from mid to late October. Jazz Umbria, Europe's most popular jazz event, is held in Perugia in July. Assisi, hit in 1997 by two earthquakes that killed 11 people and left 13,000 homeless, is the home of the Basilica di San Francesco which houses Giotto's incomparable frescoes. Gubbio is renowned for its spectacular views and ceramics. Deruta, located just south of Perugia, is also a ceramics center.

The province of Terni includes such southern Umbrian gems as Orvieto, considered a monument to the Renaissance and medieval periods. Once an Etruscan fortress, Orvieto is home to an excellent Etruscan museum as well as a spectacular duomo. It's also a favorite papal retreat due to its proximity to Rome. Orvieto enjoys a 360-degree view of the Umbrian hills and valleys. It was just this position that made it the ultimate protected refuge in times of siege.
