Perugia, Assisi and Gubbio are Umbria at its most romantic and eclectic.
Beautiful landscapes alternate with vibrant, bustling towns, where the fully intact medieval historical centre is an unchanging backdrop for events and experiences. The sublime art of the masters Pietro Vannucci – referred to as Perugino – and Pinturicchio can be admired in the splendid Galleria Nazionale dell’Umbria. Their works complement the unique spirituality of these places, the timeless, mystical stories of Saint Francis and Saint Clare in Assisi, which has long been a place of pilgrimage for those with a strong faith in God and, above all, in beauty.
Then there’s Gubbio, the perfect medieval village, the scene of so many famous episodes in the life of Saint Francis and more recently the set of the well-loved Italian fiction Don Matteo. There are the wines of Torgiano and Montefalco, the ceramics of Deruta and the age-old tradition of weaving. Surprises await the visitor at every turn, in Spello with its Infiorata flower festival, in Gubbio, and in the medieval commemorations of Assisi.
