Romantic; In the mountains; Among nature
<p>If you are looking for an artistic and cultural journey, just tens of kilometers away you will find the towns of Assisi, Spello and Spoleto; a little further away lie Perugia, Orvieto and Gubbio - all worth a visit for their artistic heritage.
The town of Spoleto, though showing influences of the Roman period in its urban layout, has retained its late-medieval look as it was once a flourishing Lombard Duchy. More recently it has become an important center of the Papal States.
The main events in Umbria are: the gastronomic festivals (spring - autumn, in various cities and towns of Umbria), May Day (May, Assisi), the Festa dei Ceri (May, Gubbio), Umbria Jazz (July, Perugia), the Market-Fair of the horse (September, Citta di Castello), the celebrations in honor of St. Francis (October, Assisi), Eurochocolate (October, Perugia), the exhibition market of white truffles and agri-food products (October, Gubbio), the truffle exhibition market (November, Citta di Castello), religious celebrations and concerts (December, Assisi), the biggest Christmas tree in the world (December-January; Gubbio), and lively nativity scenes (December-January, several cities and towns of Umbria).</p>
