Insiders guide to: umbria

Overview

Known as the "green heart" of Italy, Umbria is a beautiful region almost hidden in plain sight between Rome and Tuscany. Umbria is a region well known for its hearty food and beautiful countryside dotted with hilltop towns where ancient traditions have been observed for centuries.

In this guide we share the places to visit specifying those with train stations for those who would like to get around without a car. It's worth noting that the stations are often a kilometer or two outside of the town so there may be a little walking involved including uphill treks to the hilltop towns.

We've also found the top agriturismi and revealed the local dishes to try and where to try them. In the events section you'll discover local events by season - food festivals (sagre), historical re-enactments and more.
