Walking Holidays in Umbria
Umbria is known as the green heart of Italy and has rolling hills, fields of sunflowers, olive groves and vineyards producing amazing Sagrantino wines. From the visually stunning hilltop town of Spoleto, to the birthplace of St Francis, Assisi, Umbria’s old-world traditions have been kept alive due to this region having no sea or country borders. 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.
Why not take our Umbria: Trails to Assisi walking adventure? From Spoleto, your starting point, you can see your final destination of Assisi perched on Mount Subasio with the sweeping plains below. Begin to get excited about what comes between; constant views to the Apennine Mountains, Etruscan, Roman and medieval history galore and pretty towns offering exquisite cuisine and wines. If you wish, you can combine Umbria with Tuscany, on our Treasures of Tuscany and Umbria tour, which offers walking in both regions.
