Posted on 15 November in Italy, Umbria. A region which has become increasingly popular amongst tourists year-on-year, Umbria, known as the ‘green heart of Italy’, is a location that captures the true essence of Italian life. Todi is one of the best-known Umbrian hill-towns, its central Piazza del Popolo widely held to be among the most perfect medieval piazzas in Italy, and the town itself to be the country’s most liveable. At heart a thriving and insular agricultural centre, Todi is also a favoured trendy retreat for foreign expats and Rome’s arts and media types.   After our Umbria articles, about the Valnerina, our selection of 5 charming little towns in ancient Umbria, and the most lovely B&Bs in Umbria, we are now going to take you on a virtual visit of eight Umbrian hilltop villages, seven of which are located in the province of Perugia (of which three in the Lake Trasimeno area) and one in the province of Terni.

Located in the central-eastern Umbria, between Foligno and Spoleto, Trevi rises on the slopes of Monte Serano, perched on a hill rich in olive trees facing the plains of Spoleto. Baschi The lovely village of Baschi is a perfectly preserved medieval hill town, well worth a detour to wander the narrow lanes and soak in the Old World atmosphere. The only landlocked region in Italy, Umbria is located almost dead center of the country. There are no metropolitan cities in the region, but the lack of industry is made up for ten-fold by the natural beauty of the countryside and the preservation of early architecture, buildings dating from the Medieval period dotting the landscape throughout the area.   Touring Umbria Italy is not a toddler-friendly vacation, but there is much that tweens and teens would love. Roman ruins, fortresses, and underground cities like Perugia’s Rocca Paolinait’s provide a pain-free history lesson. A chocolate factory tour at . Nestled in the middle of Italy within easy driving distance of Rome, Florence and both the Adriatic and Tyrrhenian seas, Umbria is perfect for an Italian getaway.
