Full description
Following pick-up from your hotel in Foligno, Perugia, Todi, Assisi, Spoleto or Gubbio (others cities on request), visit one or more cities in Umbria, depending on your point of departure. Go to the Basilica di Sant'ubaldo in Gubbio, where you will find a Roman Mausoleum and Roman Theater. The ancient city celebrates its patron on the 15th of May each year with the Corsa dei Ceri. Admire one of the most beautiful Etruscan towns in Umbria at Perugia. See the Porta Marzia, Pozzo Etrusco (also known as the "Etruscan Arch of Augustus"), and Fontana Maggiore. In the city of Todi you can discover medieval monuments, such as the church of Santa Maria della Consolazione and the Palazzo del Capitano. Admire the Palazzo del Priore, Palazzo del Popolo and Todi Cathedral. Visit the birthplace of St. Francis of Assisi and learn more about Italy’s famous patron saint. See Roman ruins integrated into medieval homes that are still lived in by the locals. Visit the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli, where St. Francis first renounced the world to live in poverty. Go to the Convent of San Damiano to learn about Saint Claire, founder of the Order of Poor Ladies. Visit the Eremo delle Carceri (Carceri Hermitage) in the forest gorge above Assisi, where St. Francis came to pray. Orvieto is located on the flat summit of a large butte of volcanic tuff. Head to the Duomo to admire the black and white striped building in a mix of Romanesque and Gothic styles. Go inside to see the bronze doors, rose window and frescoes by Luca Signorelli. Then walk around the historic center and visit the Piazza del Popolo, Saint Patrick's Well, Corso Cavour and a variety of churches. Don't miss the underground city of tunnels, galleries, wells, stairs, quarries, cellars, passageways, cisterns and rooms. Go to Spello on the slopes of Mount Subasio and enjoy commanding views of the Umbrian plains. Look out over olive groves and vineyards. There will be the chance to taste the wines and olive oils and see the thriving trade of these ancient products if it's a market day. Stop at the tiny hamlet of Collepino, perched in the forests between Assisi and Spello, and discover a former settlement of shepherds and woodcutters. Admire the 13th to 14th-century Palazzo Comunale (Town Hall) in Montefalco. See the former church of San Filippo Neri, now a town theater. Other historic churches include Sant' Agostino and Santa Illuminata. See handsome 16th-century residences in Santa Maria di Piazza. Taste a selection of Sagrantino and Rosso di Montefalco wines. Marvel at churches of Romanesque, Renaissance and Gothic styles. Bevagna boasts ancient Roman monuments that date back to the 1st century BC. Just a few steps from the Forum, you will discover the remains of a temple. Head to the thermal baths, still decorated with frescoes. Explore the medieval heart of the city to see sights such as the 13th-century Palazzo dei Consoli. Go to the 19th-century theater to admire its decorations by Domenico Bruschi. Look at the ceiling of dancing muses by Mariano Piervittori.
