Umbria, located in central Italy and bordered by Tuscany to the west, Marche to the east and Lazio to the south, boasts beautiful landscapes, and is rich in history and artistic legacy. It still has the remains of Etruscan settlements, particularly around Castiglione del Lago. Umbria is characterized by green hills and historical towns such as Assisi, Norcia, Gubbio, Spoleto, Todi, Orvieto and Perugia, and features natural wonders like Cascata delle Marmore waterfalls near Terni and Lake Trasimeno, central Italy’s largest lake. The charm of Umbria derives from its fusion of art, nature and tranquility. See what we're talking about here: Have you been to Umbria?
