Ah, so this is where the tourists are in Umbria. Much of Umbria was so quiet, but buses full of tourists descend upon Assisi, the birthplace of St. Francis. Grand churches abound in Assisi, and the view of the surrounding countryside is stunning.

Sarah and I went along with some friends who were all about the EuroChocolat festival. Thank God we tagged along on this adventure! The streets were completely packed full of people celebrating, tasting, and enjoying everything chocolate. One of the great memories was watching sculptors use all their tools to chisel statues from blocks of chocolate, with thousand looking on ...

We were in Gubbio last summer, and I want to recommend a restaurant, but feel guilty 'cos the card I kept got lost so the name of the Restaurant is gone. But its easy to find, because one of the Gubbio 'things to do' is to go up the hill on the little (max. 2 person) cable car. At the ...

Hands down one of my favorite hilltowns in Umbria. Great views, chock full of fabulous wine bars (this is Sagrantino country), a picture-perfect piazza, and one of the best restaurants (L'Alchimista) around.

Terni is a strange, but useful, town in Lazio whose industrial history made it a target for bombings during World War II. Therefore it's beautiful old town is surrounded by newer, cheaper housing projects and box stores lining large, ugly streets. The town has its charms - particularly as you move towards its center - but its main draw is ...

Catch the ferry to the hostel on Isola Polvese from this tiny fishing town. Stay for a while and visit the adorably local fishing museum, or take a boat trip out with local fishermen from the lake cooperative.

Best hangover of my life here after my sister got married in a castilo nearby. The Bloody Mary is simply outstanding.

If you love pottery, Deruta is a must. In the business of pottery since 500 years, this little village produces some of the most beautiful majolica you will encounter in Italy. The small museum in the center of the village is a good starting point, but then you will hve to go down to Via Tiberina where most of the ...

A tiny mountain village just past Norcia. It overlooks the Gran Piano di Castelluccio - the great high plain famous for lentils and other legumes and grains. Go in early summer for a spectacular wild flower show or in the winter for light skiing.

Hiking through olive groves, poking around a castle, peeping at a ruined monastery, and dipping your lower limbs (or whole body) in the lake are some ways to enjoy this little island. An eco-preserve, you can also rent a bike to tool around on, or stop and eat some amazing local food (fish like luccio and persico from the lake) ...

If you're interested in having an appendectomy, this is a terrific place to do it. Spontaneously had mine in 2009 at the hospital in this little town. Great medical care and 4 days in the hospital plus surgery only runs $5K. Ideal if you speak Italian as very few of the doctors and staff speak English. As far as the ...

This town is Beautiful,Quaint and has retained its Charm in spite of its increasing popularity. If you are in the region of Umbria I would suggest that you spend a couple of days in Spoleto. It is small and easy to get around with a small town hospitality you rarely find in Italy.

One of the most charming towns in all of Umbria (if not all of Italy). Set in the valley - finally no steep hills to walk up! - it is one of the best preserved medieval towns in Umbria. Don't miss Le Gaite - a really fun festival held in June.
