Walking in Umbria: The Art Cities

Walking in Umbria: The Art Cities

From 840Euro per person

From Perugia to Montefalco
You will begin in the art capital of Perugia. With breathtaking Renaissance buildings in marble & medieval defensive walls, Perugia is a feast for the eyes. From Perugia you will traverse the hills of Umbria, a region of Italy best known for its pristine natural parks, with lush verdant forests & cascading waterfalls. At the top of the cliffs will be the town of Assisi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The birthplace of Saint Francis, Assisi has breathtaking medieval churches with frescoes by the early Renaissance masters: Cimabue, Simone Martini & Giotto. After Assisi lies the little-known town of Spello, with an ancient Roman villa & a long tradition of creating artworks with flowers. As you work your way closer to Montefalco, you’ll see countless Etruscan & ancient Roman ruins, from amphitheaters to man-made caves.
