Umbria

Umbria, the only region of the Italian peninsula to be inland, is often referred as being the “green heart of Italy”. Its green hills, streams and valleys, with terraced vineyards, orchards and miles of olive groves make of it a real masterpiece of nature.

Perhaps it is the evocative nature of the place, or a certain enchanted air (we might almost say “mystic”) that you breathe to some extent everywhere, but sooner or later whoever visits Umbria ends up thinking: Saint Francis, that great, gentle, tender and poetic Saint of happiness and meekness could only have been born here in Umbria (Assisi). In this place of ever-green, enchanted and radiant nature. But Saint Francis was not the only one who was inspired from His native land. Several Christian saints were born here among whom St Clare of Assisi, St. Benedict of Norcia, St.Rita of Cascia.

Primax TravelMonasticism began in the Umbrian hills, and abbeys, monasteries, churches and convents are found throughout the region and they are part of many mystical and not itineraries.
 
In the spring wildflowers transform the rolling Umbrian countryside into a rainbow of color, but still one’s eye is drawn upward, to the tops of the surrounding hills, to the walled towns perched above.

Perhaps the most distinguishing feature of the region, these fortified medieval hill towns are rich in art, history and architecture, and many are relatively untouched by tourism. Gubbio, Spello, Todi, Spoleto, Deruta, Orvieto, Cittá di Castello — all are unique and worthy of a visit. Perugia, the capital, is one of Italy’s best preserved towns, with a Primax Travelstrong artistic and cultural tradition. Just to describe it is to lose oneself in the richness, complexity and magnificence of its architectural and artistic treasures. The fresco painters Perugino and Pinturicchio lived here, and their works are part of a comprehensive collection of Umbrian art displayed in the 13th century Palazzo dei Priori, or town hall, considered one of the finest secular buildings in Italy.
Perugia is also the site of the annual Umbria Jazz Festival and  Eurochocolate Festival and home to the famous Perugina chocolates, Buitoni pasta and Luisa Spagnoli couture.

 

In these towns the concept of “historic centre” seems inadequate and reductive, so widespread is the monumental and artistic component in the towns of Umbria.

Once in life everybody should breaths at least once this unique Umbria’s air.
