Walking in Umbria Short Break

  • A walking short break in Italy’s green heart, Umbria
  • Full-bodied Sagrantino wines and the rich earthiness of tartufo (truffles)
  • Stay in the remarkable hilltop towns of Montefalco and Spello
  • Assisi, the birthplace of Italy’s premier saint, St Francis
  • An unspoiled region of old-world traditions and architectural treasures
Take a short break in Umbria, walking through Italy’s “green heart” and following trails to the birthplace of St Francis, Assisi. From Montefalco you can see your final destination, Assisi, perched on Mount Subasio with the sweeping plains below. Begin to get excited about what comes between: constant views to the Apennine Mountains, history galore and pretty towns offering exquisite cuisine and wines. Umbria’s old-world traditions have been kept alive due to this region having no sea or country borders and whilst the towns you visit are vibrant and fun, there is also a sense of tradition with many ancient architectural and artistic treasures to behold.
