THE SURROUNDING AREA

Umbria is a quiet area right in the heart of Italy, and North of Rome. It is southeast of Tuscany. Ficulle is near the Tuscan border, and places like Pienza, Montalcino, Montepulciano, and Siena are just over the border in Tuscany. Umbria is known for its rolling hills and Chestnut and Elm groves. The Tiber River originates in Umbria at Monte Fumaiolo. Umbria is also known for its hand-made ceramics and hand-made linen. Ficulle has some great terracotta shops, but a town called Deruta is the ceramic center.

Orvieto is a classic Italian town with one of the best duomos in Italy. The 'Slow Food Movement' originated here. Assisi is a small Umbrian town of 3000 people, but with annual tourists of several million –it is still a must see for the frescos of Giotto. One of the largest Italian lakes is in Umbria, Lake Trasimeno. This is where Hannibal won a major battle against the Romans in the II century BC. Spoleto is another well-known Umbrian town (famous for its wine festival in June, its art and music festival, called Due Mondi, in June-July, and its Jazz festival held in the summer and in December) as is Perugia (famous for its chocolate, which is celebrated in an annual festival in October and its jazz festival in July). These are just some of the events going on in Umbria- the list is endless, and that is why I’ve supplied some links with some more information on this site. There is something for everyone in this beautiful region.
