Save Place
Piazza Chiesa Nuova, 6, 06081 Assisi PG, Italy
Wander the streets of Assisi after visiting the primary sights and grab an Italian pastry or gelato. Many bakeries near the main sights so take a break and enjoy some sugary goodness!
Save Place
Piazza del Duomo, 26, 05018 Orvieto TR, Italy
It was love at first sight. Everything about Orvieto is charming, with the exception of the Duomo (Cathedral) which more appropriately would be described as elegant and grand, especially the facade. Originally a thriving center of Etruscan...
Save Place
Perugia, Province of Perugia, Italy
I loved exploring the winding cobblestone streets of Perugia. This charming town is positioned on a hill filled with historic buildings, lively squares, and wonderful cafes. It was a great place for people watching and photography.
Save Place
Strada della Direttissima c/o Parcheggio della Funicolare, 05019 Orvieto TR, Italy

I just thought Orvieto was such a quaint little town! Fantastic views of the countryside and a little less touristy than the big cities.

Save Place
Via Maddalena, 1, 06038 Spello PG, Italy
As if the picturesque Umbrian hill-top town of Spello wasn't perfect enough, it's also home to the fantastic Vinosofia wine bar and shop. This beautifully designed space is as warm and welcoming as it's owner, American expat, Brenda. Vinosofia...
Save Place
Via della Rocca, 06081 Assisi PG, Italy
Around this time last year I made a trip to Assisi that still stands out as one of the best days of my seven months in Italy. It was a beautiful fall day in Assisi and my friends and I filled it by visiting the town's major churches, watching...

Best known as the birthplace of St. Francis, Italy's patron saint, the historic town of Assisi is a must-see on any trip through Umbria. Assisi is beautiful in so many ways, from its well-known Basilica of San Francesco (the burial place of St....
Save Place
19, Corso Pietro Vannucci, 06123 Perugia PG, Italy
Like any destination worth seeing, Italy is more than meets the eye. Sure, you could visit on a cruise and see some highlights and landmarks in the big cities, but to experience authentic Italy, it takes time and a willingness to leave the...
Save Place
06034 Foligno, Province of Perugia, Italy
My home country has an irrational fear of raw milk. In order to purchase this creamy, floral, rich milk with a faint vanilla flavor, you either can't or you must go through some odd maneuvers, such as buying a share of a cow. But in Umbria (and...
Save Place
05018 Orvieto, Province of Terni, Italy
Beneath the modern city of Orvieto, Italy, lies a mystery. A series of grottoes and meandering paths that were carved out of living stone centuries ago by hands long-since dead can now be explored by tourists today. An hour-long guided tour of the...
Save Place
Piazza Inferiore di S. Francesco, 2, 06081 Assisi PG, Italy
The Basilica of Saint Francis in Assisi is the Catholic mother church of the Franciscan Order and is an important Christian pilgrimage site. Partially destroyed in the 1997 earthquake the restoration is complete. After visiting the Giotto and...
Save Place
06039 Trevi, Province of Perugia, Italy
If you find yourself in Umbria during the month of October, find a way to Trevi for their Sedano Nero (black celery) festival. Different events occur on different weekends, but the sale of celery is marvelous. Sedano Nero is listed on Slow Food's...
Save Place
06059 Todi, Province of Perugia, Italy
When driving through the hilly villages of Umbria (Tuscany's southern, more laid back neighbor), it's easy to stumble upon food trucks-- many of which are stocked with day-of roasted Italian pig. On a recent trip to Orvieto, Todi was a particular...
Save Place
06031 Bevagna, Province of Perugia, Italy
Wander the cobblestone streets of this medieval Italian city and tour the workshops of traditional craftspeople like paper-makers, candle-makers and weavers. Hand-dipped candles, as well as artisan-quality paper and fabrics make great gifts and...

Corso Cavour, n° 87, 05018 Orvieto TR, Italy
Make Torre del Moro your first stop in Orvieto! Climb the Torre del Moro in the center of the medieval city for a great view of Orvieto! You'll look down on rooftops to see the layout of the city, gain a new perspective on the size of Orvieto's...
Save Place
06036 Montefalco, Province of Perugia, Italy
Known as the balcony of Umbria because of it's location on top of a hill--Montefalco (much like a balcony) is an ideal place to take in sweeping views of the surrounding area, and get a grip on what Umbria looks like from a distance. The hill-top...
Save Place
Piazza Santa Chiara, 1, 06081 Assisi PG, Italy
The stories around St Francis of Assisi are relatively well-known, and of particular interest with the election of a Roman Catholic pope who took his name. St Francis was born wealthy and eventually had a spiritual awakening which let him to...
Save Place
06024 Gubbio, Province of Perugia, Italy
Gubbio is said to be a perfect medieval city, but I found that it had an oddly shadowy vibe. Umbrians joke that people in Gubbio are crazy, that the isolation of its location has created a hothouse for kookiness (you can even get a certificate of...
Save Place
Loc. Titignano, 7, 05018 Orvieto TR, Italy
Following the recommendation by a friend of a friend {Grazie, Elisa & Patricia!}, we made reservations for our last dinner in Umbria at Castello di Titignano, heading to the hilltop village and castle we could see from our base in Asproli across...
Save Place

The walled city of strategic Spoleto in Umbria, Italy is a mere 2 hour 20 minute train ride from the Termini train station in Rome. Traversing the old city streets brought my husband and I to unexpected panoramic views, a Roman aqueduct, a...
