So, why Umbria? It has all the charms of Tuscany, but far fewer tourists.
A lot of people travel to Tuscany thinking that they’ll be the only foreigners, only to find themselves elbow to elbow with
dozens of shuffling tour groups in San Gimignano or Cortona. Tuscany is magical, but parts of it feel like Italian
Disneyland these days.
Travel to Umbria and you’ll experience all of the beauty, all of the charm, and all of the deliciousness of Tuscany —
with fewer crowds and less price-gouging.
All of the town you will visit in Umbria are lovely, photogenic . lovely. Gubbio, Perugia, Massa Martana, Assisi, Spello,
Norci. These towns are a good visit for first-time Italy travelers, with tourist attractions and plenty of English speakers.
And LOTS of delicious food, of course! Imagine plate after plate of fresh foods, cured meats, a giant mound of fresh
ricotta, tons of vegetables picked from the dirt that day.
