Perugia is in the capital of the Umbria region in the heart of Italy situated in between Florence & Rome and is known for its defensive walls around the historic center, the medieval Priori Palace exhibits regional art from the 13th century onward and has thousands of visitors on an annual basis. Looking onto Piazza IV Novembre, the Gothic cathedral houses Renaissance paintings and frescoes and in the square’s center, Fontana Maggiore is a marble fountain with carvings of biblical scenes and zodiac signs.
Umbria is a region where the food, wine, art, culture and architecture are the equal of any in Italy.
Norcia, with its truffles, hams and cheeses, for example, is a gastronomic centre par excellence; Orvieto’s duomo is one of the country’s finest cathedrals; Spoleto’s summer festival is one of Europe’s major cultural events; and Assisi’s majestic Basilica di San Francesco contains frescoes by Giotto and others that mark a turning point in the history of Western art. Finally, there are qualities to Umbria beyond towns, truffles or cypresses.
Umbria mistica – mystical Umbria – some have called it, or “la terra dei santi”, the land of saints, after the hundreds of saints born here, including St Valentine and the two fathers of Western monasticism, St Francis and St Benedict.
It’s hard to put your finger on what sets Umbria apart – some quality to the light, a haze to the hills, a certain gentleness to landscape – but once you’ve visited you’ll understand, and wonder how this varied and beautiful region ever languished in its neighbour’s shadow.
