Orvieto

Surrounded by luxuriant vegetation, the waterfall is a favorite of watersport lovers. Assisi, another gem of Umbria, is the birthplace of Santa Chiara and San Francesco, Italy’s patron saint.

 

Orvieto, in the Province of Terni, is a city famous for its magnificent Duomo, palaces, medieval “vicoli,” and the legendary Pozzo di San Patrizio. Other wonderful, bucolic villages evoking the Nativity, like Bevagna and Spello, are perched along the mountain slopes, and the medieval burg of Gubbio is also a place of great significance in the history of San Fancesco’s life.

Umbria, an untouched oasis in the heart of the Bel Paese, is a land of deep green, composed of winding hills, mountains, valleys, and old villages.

 

Sprawling on the middle basin of the River Tiber, Umbria contains Lake Trasimeno, the greatest lake of central Italy, near which you’ll find the remains of ancient Etruscan settlements, especially in the Castiglione del Lago area, a place that combines the charm of the natural landscape with the sentimentality and quiet of the lake.

The region’s most famous attraction is the Cascata delle Marmore, considered one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Europe. Its waters dive in the Nera River with a spectacular 165-meter drop.
