Villages and small towns in Umbria

If there is a region that can be considered the land of the villages, this is precisely Umbria, where the charm of the Middle Ages is perfectly preserved and you can breathe in every corner of the villages that dot an area as if suspended in time. From Montefalco to Spello, from Arrone to Preci, passing through Cascia and Bevagna, the atmosphere of an ancient era comes to life like never before, among cobbled streets and postcard views. Umbria also boasts landscapes of inestimable beauty: here are the spectacular Marmore Falls, among the most suggestive in Europe, and the peaceful Lake of Trasimeno.
