Umbria, “the Green Heart of Italy”, is waiting for you. There are so many things to see and places to visit. The biggest cities in the region are Perugia and Terni, but there are also many other smaller towns to visit. Perugia has an important university that attracts many foreign students and is a center of medieval art. It is also the most famous producer of chocolate in Italy and is the home the Umbria Jazz Festival. Terni is an industrial town from which you can do excursions to the Marmore falls and lake Piediluco.
This a region renowned for its typical food products such as truffles, wine, olive oil, stuffed meat and cheese.
Umbria is bordered by Tuscany, the Marche and Lazio. It is partly hilly and mountainous and partly flat and fertile, owing to the valley of the Tiber. It includes part of the central Apennines. Its the only Italian region which doesn’t have a coastline or share a border with another country.
It’s a relaxing region and you are more than welcome to visit!
