Umbria is the Green Heart of Italy. The long summers and fertile land bring forth olives, grapes and other delicious produce in sun-kissed abundance. Beautifully preserved Renaissance towns dot the landscape.

Besides the treasures of Assisi are the lesser known attractions of Spello, Spoleto and our base of Trevi, an excellent balance of sightseeing and walks. Here peace and quiet pervade the shade of old town streets. The scent of jasmine is intoxicating – look out for the Spello Flower Festival in June – and for the Trevi Medieval Festival in October.

Proposed Itinerary

Select Departure :
10 Oct 2017 7 nights London (Heathrow)

Day 1 We fly to Rome and travel about two hours through Lazio and Umbria to Trevi, our base for the week.
Day 2 We take a walk along the ‘Olive Tree Trail’ offering panoramic views of the Valle Umbria. The rest of the day is free to explore Trevi with a visit to the museum and church of San Francesco.
Day 3 We will visit the hilltop town of Spoleto and its 12th century cathedral. The ‘Ponte delle Torri’ (Bridge of Towers) is Spoleto’s must-see sight and one of Italy’s engineering wonders.
Day 4 We spend a full day in Assisi and have a local guide to show us the highlights, including a visit to one of Umbria’s truly memorable sights, the Basilica of St Francis.
Day 5 We walk out to Casa Margherita, the home of an English couple who made their home here. Casa Margherita produces top quality extra virgin olive oil. We will be offered a fascinating insight into its production. Later we return to the hotel for a cookery demonstration to gain further understanding of Umbrian culinary tradition.
Day 6 Lake Trasimeno is Italy’s fourth largest lake. We enjoy a boat trip to the lovely island of Isola Maggiore and a short walk takes us to the top of the island and the 13th century Chiesa di San Archangelo.
Day 7 Spello is another lovely medieval hill town sitting under Monte Subasio. There are Roman arches and quiet winding streets to explore with some stunning Pinturicchio frescoes in the church of Santa Maria Maggiore.
Day 8 Alas, we must take our private coach back to Rome and fly home.
