Your once in a lifetime journey starts in Rome. Just south east of the beloved region of Tuscany lies another gem of the Italian peninsula, the region of Umbria. Referred to as the "green heart of Italy", this small region offers the same wealth of historic and cultural heritage as its renowned neighboring region.
The charm of Umbria derives from its fusion of art, nature, peace and calm. Stay in a medieval castle and immerse yourself in a medieval cooking class in Assisi, the village of St Francis's birth, patron saint of Italy. Then head to Spoleto, a picturesque town that boasts a thousand-year-old history, and preserves images from the past in its Medieval and Renaissance architecture.
Not far from Perugia, the capital city of the region, is Lake Trasimeno, Italy's fourth largest lake, framed by castle topped medieval towns.
Satisfy your wanderlust in this ancient and picturesque region of Italy!
