Campello sul Clitunno (Umbria)

Campello sul Clitunno is a town in the Province of Perugia in the Italian region Umbria, located about 45 km southeast of Perugia. The municipality has two centers: Campello Alto, a fortified hamlet which developed around the Castle built in the 10th-11th century by Rovero di Champeaux, baron of Burgundy; and Campello Basso, which has the Church of Madonna della Bianca (11th century), with its handsome stone portal and two frescoes by Spagna. The Campello Alto Castle has preserved intact its walls and a single gate providing access to the village, where one finds the Church of San Donato, with a fine wooden altar, the Town Hall and, nearby, the Barnabite monastery complex, which holds inside a Madonna by Spagna and a 15th-century fresco of the Crucifixion and Saints in the style of Giotto. The true pearl of this area is the Clitunno Springs, a series of springs in the midst of utterly enchanting surroundings.

Hi, I'm looking for some accurate information regarding the bus from Orvieto to Bagnoregio. I've tried the Cotral website, but the search never works for me. I found an typed schedule from a blog, but have no idea if it is still current or accurate.

Ciao tutti.  We have a home in Umbria, and I would like to know if you need solar energy to operate your pool?  We do not have a heated pool and are not interested in installing solar panels due to the cost.  Currently we have 4 solar panels and 6 batteries that have been there since we purchased

I am trying to find my Italian roots.  I have documents for my grandfather but I want to find his parents and grandparents.

I have names in my grandmother's line but I need help to validate my findings.  What sources can I use while I am in Italy.
