Castiglione del Lago
Everchanging, untouched landscapes in the green of winding valleys make Umbria a region that will never fail to amaze. This region comprises mainly hills, mountains, hollows and plains and extends along the Tiber’s central basin.
At the heart of the boot, it is the only region with no coastline.It includes Lake Trasimeno, central Italy’s largest lake. The area still has the remains of Etruscan settlements, particularly around Castiglione del Lago, where the loveliness of the natural landscape combines with the romanticism and stillness of the lake.
Assisi is a small town in central Umbria about 20 minutes east of Perugia and approximately half-way between Rome and Florence. The town is a Unesco heritage site known for the magnificent medieval architecture and for being the birthplace of Saint Francis.
While you can cover the highlights in one day, make sure to stay longer to appreciate the magical atmosphere of the medieval alleys at night and the views of the surrounding countryside blanketed by woods and olive groves.The first sight of Assisi, perched halfway up the slopes of Mount Subasio is extraordinary. Virtually untouched by modern architecture, with the soft pink of its medieval buildings shimmering against the greenery of the mountain, Assisi is an experience for the eye and the soul.
