Located in the central part of Italy, south of Tuscany, Umbria is a small and landlocked region, unknown to the most. Often referred to as the “green heart of Italy”, Umbria has the same breath-taking landscapes of Tuscany, gorgeous hill-top towns and villages, excellent food and wine and numerous famous Festivals that take place during the year in the regional capital: Perugia.
Umbria Jazz Festival, the 10-days July event (which has seen from 1973 the participation of great musicians as BB King, James Brown, Sting, Van Morrison) and The Eurochocolate International Exhibition in October are just a few examples of what Perugia can offer.
Perugia looks like a small hill-top medieval town. It’s instead a very busy city with one of the oldest University for foreigners of Italy, full of artistic and historical jewels.
It can be visited in a one-day tour (1h 45’ distance from Florence), together with the hill-top town beauty of Assisi, located just 14 miles east of Perugia, a Unesco World Heritage Site and home to the Patron of animals and environment Saint Francis of Assisi.
