Umbria Cities and Regions


Umbria’s cosmopolitan capital, set aloft on an imposing hill, is famous for chocolate and pasta. Head straight for the Piazza IV Novembre and Corso Vannucci for shopping, cafés and nightlife.

Lake Trasimeno

Via Flaminia

Along this 2,200-year-old road you’ll find these Eastern Umbrian city-gems; the lofty town of Gualdo Tadino, old Montefalco, and Spoleto, famous for its Roman amphitheatre and annual festival.


The University of Kentucky lauded fashionable, environmentally-friendly Todi as the world’s most liveable city. It’s also said to contain the most perfect example of a medieval piazza.


Celebrated for its white wine, Orvieto is a pretty city built high on an outcrop of volcanic rock. Its Duomo, a spectacular Gothic cathedral, took two centuries to complete.
