In this part of Umbria will can find an incredible microcosm: a beautiful mountain whose peak is 1290m above sea level, Mt. Subasio, with lots of walking paths and the purest water streams, and below it a wide and fertile valley that is the home of numerous streams and rivers, the banks of which double as cycling paths.
The valley is encircled by Mount Subasio, by the Martani Mountains and many gently rolling hills. The towns and villages in this valley are enchanting and steeped in history, and then there are the many vineyards and olive groves, where some of the best olive oil in Italy is produced. Not to mention the famous Sagrantino wine.
Wandering around these villages, places like Bevagna, Montefalco, Cannara, Cantalupo, Torgiano, Brufa, means getting lost in the ancient history of its people, literature and art. A surreal atmosphere prevails in these ages-old towns and only a slow tourism in the countryside allows you grasp its deeper meaning, the soul hidden to those in a hurry.
Mount Subasio is the mountain par excellence in Umbria Valley, and Assisi is one of Christianity’s most famous holy cities. Assisi is not only the destination of pilgrims who want to see where Saint Francis was born, lived and preached, but is also where, near the Porziuncola, he died on October 4th, 1226. It’s a rightfully popular destination for art lovers, peace supporters and hiking enthusiasts!
Once in the area, don’t forget to visit Umbria’s capital, Perugia, the city of chocolate, the Etruscan city, the city of jazz and one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Italy! Thanks to the University for Foreigners, Perugia is a very lively, young and dynamic city with many masterpieces of art right in its centre! Urban Trekking is a special way of saying that the only way to get in touch with local culture and discover hidden treasures is on foot! Walk in Perugia, stroll up and down it to discover its real soul!
