Arts, events and shopping
Gubbio, Perugia, Assisi, Todi, Orvieto, Spoleto. All Umbria’s medievial towns are filled with history and treasures. Ancient streets and alleyways are flanked with palaces and elegant houses, delightful shops and boutiques, and of course breathtaking views glimpsed from many a street corner.
Other local delights include, the Umbria’s National Gallery in Perugia, Città di Castello home of the Burri Foundation’s collection of works from the Palazzo Albizzini, Montefalco’s vineyards producing the exceptional Sagrantino di Montefalco, Montepulciano with its renowned Brunello, and Torgiano, home of wine producer Lungarotti which has a small wine museum organising tastings. Local specialist products include Cucinelli’s finest cashmere, Mastro Raphael’s traditional linen, and Deruta’s ceramics. Gucci and Prada both have outlet stores nearby, and just a little further lie Siena and the Tuscany hills.
All of this and much more is at hand, the choice is yours.
