亲亲宝贝1234A beautiful town on the top of the mountain, the evening scenery is so beautiful! The cathedral is very exquisite, and the interior decoration is gorgeous, but it's a pity not to let you take pictures! There happened to be an event held in the church. I watched it for a while. The outside scenery, the blue sky in the evening, accompanied by the sunset, is as beautiful as a picture!
小思文The Italian chocolate factory and museum are also quite large. The museum facilities are also very good. They are the best handmade chocolate processing places in Italy. There are many world-renowned chocolate masters and the taste is very pure.
203***17It can be said that there are churches everywhere in Europe, especially the cathedrals at every turn. This church claims to be ranked very high among the religions in Italy, so I went to see it. There is nothing special, but I feel that it is in the night. Finding a place and admiring the building under the lighting effect, it feels good
小思文Perugia City Hall is also an administrative agency. There is also a square near the building. The City Hall is also a place in the core of the city. Many places here are also very interesting. You can visit here.
203***17Perugia is an ancient town with Gothic architecture. The square on November 4th can be a relatively large square in the local area. It may be that the whole city is a mountain city, so it is not easy to have such an open space. The building is very special, if you drive by yourself, it’s okay to check it out

#mynovgetaway Thanks to the enchanting geographical position (on top of a 473 metres hill, among the valleys of Clitunno, Topino and Tevere), Montefalco has been defined "the Umbrian railing". A landmark for hilly landscapes, trekking, biking and outdoor life lovers.
Its name used to be Coccorone during the Middle Ages: according to the legend the toponym derived from its presumed founder, the senator Marco Curione; on the contrary, modern historians think it derived from the Ancient Greek "oros", mount.
Suddenly, between the end of 1249 and 1250, this charming place got the name of Montefalco, probably from one of the hawks (falco, in Italian) of the emperor Frederik Barbarossa, that stayed in Coccorone from the 9th to the 13th of February 1240.
Montefalco is famous for the astonishing frescoes of its churches: this lovely village is indeed one of the essential points of interest for a basic knowledge of the traditional Umbrian painting.
Montefalco is been inhabited from the very ancient times: probable rural 'pago' (one of the rural districts of the Ancient Rome), Montefalco got filled up with patrician Roman villas, of which it remained a vivid memory into the toponymsof: Assegnano, Camiano, Colverano, Rignano, Satriano, Vecciano.
This glorious past is testified by the numerous epigraph and sculptural remains that you will easily find into Museo Comunale, Chiostro di San Fortunato, and so on.
The Medieval buildings overlooking the central square definitely worth a visit, there is also an old part of the village, where time is lost and there are touchable signs of an ancient life: the "voices" of old trades, arts, works...here you will perceive the deep breath of the past mingling the present. Among the rosy ashlar walls, along the tiny alleys outstretched to look the great light over the valley and some vines of Sagrantino you will find the peace you were looking for in your ideal Italian vacation.
Collepino is a village in Umbria, central Italy. It is a frazione of the comune of Spello. Geography Collepino is situated on a hill 600m.a.s. at the flank of Monte Subasio on a panoramic road from Spello to Assisi History Collepino can be traced back to the 13th century. The inhabitants were shepherds and woodworkers at the nearby Abbey S. Silvestro. Historic sites Castello di Collepino San Silvestro Abbey (founded in 1025 a.c.), in Romantic style Fonte di S. Silvestro near the abbey.....
Monteleone d'Orvieto is an old medieval village in the north province of Terni. It is located on one of the hills that separate Orvieto from Città della Pieve; from that area you can admire a breathtaking view that sweeps from Tuscany to Lazio. Its ancient origin seems to date back to Etruscan times. During the Middle Ages, Brandetto Castle was built around the year 1052 as a defensive stronghold. Its remains are still visitable today. Monteleone's name seems to be a tribute to Pope Leo IX, who led the Christian Church during that historical period.
Todi is a town in the Umbria region of central Italy containing numerous historical and interesting buildings and monuments.
There is also a great deal of art to enjoy - Todi and the surrounding region have a wealth of art among the richest of Italy partly because this Diocese, in the 18th century, controlled more than 500 churches and still today has works of art of inestimable value.

Almost every year I have chance to visit the plain of Castelluccio di Norcia, a truly magical place located between the regions of Umbria and Marche, in the Sibillini Mountains, Italy. Every July the plain is the stage of an incredible flowering (the "fioritura") of lentils, poppers, daisies, bluebottles, and other flowers. The result is a huge show of colors that draws thousands of people from around Italy and more. Horses and sheep are also a common sight in the plain. In many ways, this place looks so unreal that
you wouldn't think it really exists. The area was hit by a major earthquake in 2016 and the village of Castelluccio has been mostly wiped off, but the fascination of this place remains intact and worth of preservation. #italy #umbria #italytravel #italybeauties #travel #amazingplacetobe #awesomepic
Sitting on top of a big butte of volcanic tuff, Orvieto retains large signs of its Etrurian past, so much so that the first thing that stood out to me was the light brown tones across its alleys and its roads.
The Duomo cathedral is the main attraction. The church was built in the 14th century and is dedicated to the Ascending of the Virgin Mary. Aesthetically it might remind you of the more famous Cathedral of Siena, obviously because of its roman-gothic style! This one in Orvieto is one of the most significant in Italy.
Don’t miss a visit to another landmark of note, like Torre del Moro for a sunset view of the town and the surrounding hills, Pozzo di San Patrizio and Fortezza Albornoz!
Since we are in Umbria, food plays a unique role. Local cuisine is highly appreciated thanks to its cured meats and other traditional dishes. If you’re planning a road trip across Italy, don’t miss this part of the country for its authenticity.

Embrace the season of flowers in Spello, the "Flower Town" in Central Italy!
The lower floors of the church are dimly lit, all covered with gorgeous wet murals, all from the famous handwriting (the paintings by Cimabue, Martini, etc.). However, there is not enough light inside, you can only enjoy it with limited lighting and candlelight. On the right side of the main hall is the crucifixion of Christ. On the left is the life of Saint Francis. One of them is the classic of the Virgin and Child painted by Lorenzo. The Virgin stared at St. Francis and his face showed a very loving look. It is said that this picture is more moving under the setting sun, so it is also called "The Madonna at dusk". There are also many wet murals on the altar, which should be drawn by the disciples of Giotto. The small clothing room on the right still retains the costumes of St. Francis. The most important of the lower church is the Franciscans in the cellar and the tombs of his four followers. There are also priests who listen to the repentance and blessings of the lost. This mantle was closed in the 15th century to avoid being shackled by mortals until it was reopened in 1818. Going to the bottom of the lower church, there is a small chapel on the wall with the "Life of St. Martin" by Simon Martin, which is worth watching.
From the lower steps of the lower church you can climb to the upper church, with a small atrium in the middle, selling books and souvenirs. Compared with the lower church, the upper church was more affected by the earthquake. The most famous church in the upper class is the wet fresco of the life of St. Francis, drawn by Giotto, which is called Giotto's work. However, according to modern testimony, at least three painters participated in these 28 masterpieces.
Familiar with Serie A is no stranger to Perugia, but in the province of Perugia, there is also a well-known flower town Spello. The town is on one side of the hill. The houses in the town are made of stone. Unlike the grayish stones of other towns, the stones are slightly yellow with a distinct medieval style.
For the name of the flower town, spello can be really unambiguous. In front of every household, they are carefully decorated with small flower pots. There is no shortage of flowers all year round. Every year, the town also has the tradition of selecting the best flower arrangement, which reminds me of the courtyard festival in Cordoba, Spain. In the arrangement of flowers, the Italians can not lose the Spaniards of the Spanish, and directly put the flowers on the door, on the wall, and even on the trails.
If you don't have time to go to Sicily for a rug of flowers, it's really recommended to go to Spello for a day, the town is quiet and hospitable, because it is not a traditional place to travel, compared to the adjacent holy city of Assisi, Basically invisible to the people. The pace of life here is slow, and we may not want to leave if we come to live in the metropolis.
