Umbria: in the heart of Italy
Little Umbria is located in the centre of Italy. It is the only area which is situated neither on the national border nor on the coast – and so it is really the heart of the country.
A large part of the territory of Umbria is hilly or mountainous, but all in all it is characterized by a great scenic variety including valleys, mountain chains, plateaus and lowland plains. Around Perugia and Assisi you’ll find several nature reserves and a national park, which reflect the extraordinary natural treasures. Moreover Umbria has a varied cultural and historical patrimony that can be put down to its eventful history.
