The paths across Umbria take you through the "green heart of Italy". This is countryside of rolling hills, olive groves, golden wheat fields and small alluvial plains. You also see outcrops of the Apennines, oak forests and vast grassy meadows carpeted in spring with orchids and narcissi. Across the open landscape you find a scattering of ancient stone towns and villages with cobble-stoned lanes.
Stay in the well-preserved hilltop towns of Todi, Montefalco, Spello and Assisi, all quite different. The people are renown for their hospitality and friendliness.
They maintain past traditions as part of their everyday lives. This gives Umbria a unique and timeless quality. Taste the fine wine of Rosso de Montefalco, famous since Roman times, or unique cuisine such as cinghiale and tartufi. This walking tour has gentle rolling hills, which though not steep, are somewhat challenging – and therefore, very rewarding!
