Everchanging, untouched landscapes in the green of winding valleys make Umbria a region that will never fail to amaze. This region comprises mainly hills, mountains, hollows and plains and extends along the Tiber’s central basin.
At the heart of the boot, it is the only region with no coastline.
Lake Trasimeno, central Italy’s largest lake. The area still has the remains of Etruscan settlements, particularly around Castiglione del Lago, where the loveliness of the natural landscape combines with the romanticism and stillness of the lake.
Cascate delle Marmore waterfalls near Terni, some of the most beautiful in Europe.
The waters dive into the River Nera with a spectacular 165 m (541 ft) drop, and are surrounded by lush vegetation. This is the spot for sports lovers who enjoy canoeing, kayaking and rafting.
Straddling the provinces of Le Marche and Umbria, the Sibillini mountains are among the most beautiful in Italy. Evocative place names summon the magic of this wilderness, once believed to be a haunt of witches and sorcerers. The national park is ringed by medieval villages, which, if they were in Tuscany, would be crawling with tourists.
One of the most famous centerpiece of the area is the Piano Grande, a huge 16 square kilometre plain surrounded by the Sibillini mountain range that once was a glacier lake. The Piano Grande attracts tourists from across the globe every spring and summer when the plains are covered in a breathtaking abundance of wildflowers called the fioritura.
Closer to Santa Chiara is the National Park of Monte Tezio with an abundance of hiking and biking trails and our personal favourite Sasso , a green oasis with natural plunge pools and waterfalls.
