In search of nature? We suggest:
• The natural delights of Assisi’s Mount Subasio and its dense network of pathways filled with evocative landscapes. Don’t miss the view of the valley below, stretching from Spoleto to Perugia.
For a holiday that goes right to the heart of Umbrian traditions, we recommend:
• Calendimaggio, a colourful spring event in Assisi. For three days, games, processions, performances and taverns bring the streets of Assisi to life, transforming it into one big collective festival.
San Potente will guide you in your discovery of a region rich in history and culture...
• Umbria is an open-air museum with ancient ruins, world-renowned artistic masterpieces, exhibitions and international events.
In order to sample the best of Umbria’s food and wine specialities, we recommend:
• The wine cellars of the Umbrian Valley, the olive groves of Assisi and Spello and local produce, not to mention the coffee of Foligno, the typical taverns and the excellent restaurants of Montefalco and Bevagna.
A few examples of religious tourism in Umbria, Italy:
• The St Francis of Assisi route: from the Sanctuary of Rivotorto near Villa Rosy, to the Porziuncola of Santa Maria degli Angeli, the basilica of San Francesco di Assisi, the churches of Santa Chiara and San Damiano, and the Eremo delle Carceri, a highly spiritual place of prayer to the saint.
San Potente recommends the best places for shopping:
• From the cashmere of Solomeo to antique shops, the craft workshops of Perugia and modern design creations. These precious objects bear the mark of a land in which beauty feels right at home.
• Umbria’s cashmere outlets and factory outlets. In Umbria you will not find large shopping centres, but rather a whole host of locations to purchase quality items at discounted prices.
