Description

Umbria is considered the green heart of Italy; its landscape is characterized by valleys, hills and mountain regions, some of them appear to be high alpine, which extend along the middle course of the Tiber.
Umbria is also the land of Lake Trasimeno, the largest lake in central Italy, in the vicinity of which remains of Etruscan settlements can still be seen. The lake also feeds the Marmore waterfalls near Terni, which are among the most beautiful waterfalls in Europe.

Among the pearls of the region is Assisi, that stands out with San Francesco, the saint patron of Italy. Orvieto, famous for its spectacular cathedral, palaces, medieval streets and the legendary fountain of San Patrizio, rises in the province of Terni. Another beautiful medieval umbrian center is Gubbio, a picturesque village that is also associated with the life of Francesco d’Assisi.
