This tour takes us on an intimate journey into the medieval world of Umbria, the only landlocked region in Italy, through its most important cities, its magical hilltop towns, and its verdant heart of forests, mountains and fields. Nature and art enjoy a particularly harmonious relationship here.

We visit the Sibillini Mountains, which offer a very special ‘natural amphitheatre’, unique in all of Europe, and in springtime experience the spectacular display of wildflowers on the Piano Grande (Great Plain). We explore Castelluccio di Norcia, a farming community living at 1453m in this area, made famous by Zeffirelli’s film: Brother Sun, Sister Moon. Our accommodation is in renowned hotels and home-style villas.

We experience the language, learn the secrets of Umbrian cuisine, visit galleries and artisan studios, walk through areas of outstanding natural beauty and historical significance and participate in cultural festivities where possible. For those who love to explore a region and its people in depth and have a romantic inclination for the past, this tour is for you.

Food & Wine

We celebrate simplicity in Umbria, indulging in hearty breakfasts and outdoor picnics of the freshest breads, cheeses, meats, seasonal vegetables, and fruit. We also dine in trattorias, visit quaint cafes and meet local food and wine producers.
