Umbria is south of Tuscany and, although less known, is no less beautiful. It is full of wonderful villages, many situated on hill or mountain tops.

Sights and Activities

  • Probably the two most visited places are Assisi for anything connected with St Francis and Orvieto for its well known cathedral (and its ease of access from Rome.)
  • Spoleto abounds in churches and Roman remains.
  • Trevi - there is a very old and recently re-furbished wall pump organ in San Francesco Church.

Getting There

By Plane

Rome or Pisa are the most obvious places for international flights. The choice is wide.
Near Perugia though, San Egidio Airport (PEG) has flights to Tirana, Palma de Mallorca, Milan, Girona, London and Trapani.

By Train

Most places in Umbria can be reached easily from Rome or Florence (see below).

Getting Around

By Train

In some cases getting between Umbrian villages by rail can mean a longer journey than you would expect and a change of trains.

By Bus

In some places, such as Trevi a bus between the station and the town may be a necessity - but the bus times are not closely linked to the needs of travellers. Forward planning can save a lot of money and trouble.
