NORTHERN UMBRIA

Introduction

Northern Umbria is an exquisite landscape of unspoilt nature where greyish green olive trees, fields of sunflowers and wild flowers scattered here and there glow under the warmth of the Umbrian sunshine. The climate is excellent and vines grow abundantly in well sheltered fields. This land is the home of so many high quality wines.

Entertainment is not lacking. There is a fully booked calendar of events overflowing with festivals,  antique fairs, concerts, dance performances and open air films.

Needless to say its history and its cultural past plays a large part in attracting so many visitors. The Umbrians, the Etruscans, the Romans and then many other kingdoms have left their unmistakeable marks in the form of monuments, architecture, art …and traditions.

It is said that Northern Umbria has remained quite the same throughout the last few centuries with proof of this being found in ancient paintings of landscapes, people and architecture.
