7x most beautiful places Umbria
Umbria: the green heart of Italy! Rolling hills, countless vineyards, beautiful mountain landscapes, history and numerous charming authentic villages. Umbria managed to completely envelop us in a few weeks. It has almost everything that popular Tuscany also has, only this region is a lot less crowded. So what are you waiting for! Pack those bags, start the camper or swing your caravan behind the car! These are the most beautiful spots in Umbria.
This town is best known for its crazy festival once a year, but is also a big tip the rest of the year! The town is found in northern Umbria and is not yet overrun by tourists. This makes Gubbio extra beautiful and special. In addition, a truffle walhalla! So put this foodie city on your bucket list very soon!
1 of the most famous cities in Umbria is fairy-tale Assisi. You can already see the town appearing in the distance on the flanks of Monte Subasio. It seems as if time has stood still here. That Assisi is so popular, we think, because of its historic buildings, picturesque alleys and the most impressive views over the hills of Umbria is not at all surprising. It can get very crowded here in high season, but even then there are still plenty of quiet spots where you can grab a moment.
Monti Sibillini National Park
The Monti Sibillini National Park is the heart of Italy. Although this national park is not very large, it is not short of beauty and diversity. Located in the regions of Umbria and Le Marche, the park has numerous wonderful hiking trails. This is the place in Umbria for nature lovers.
Cascata delle Marmore
The highest waterfall in Europe can be found in Umbria. As such, Cascata delle Marmore is one of Umbria’s main attractions, and for good reason. It may be a bit touristy, but that certainly doesn’t make this place any less beautiful. The waterfall is not only very impressive it is also the perfect place for some cooling off during a hot summer day.
Just beyond Assisi lies perhaps equally beautiful Spello. Again, it’s like going back in time. Its ancient buildings, Roman ruins and beautiful charming streets make for a unique street scene.
On the way to Cascata delle Marmore, we decided to spend a night near the town of Narni. This accidentally turned out to be one of the most photogenic spots in Umbria. Numerous narrow streets and beautiful views over the hills of Umbria. It is still truly a medieval village with the most fairytale-like streetscape.
In Umbria you seek cooling at the lake, and nowhere can you do that as well as at Lago Trasimeno. This large freshwater lake is located in the middle of Umbria where you will find numerous pleasant towns. Besides swimming and water sports, this lake is a walhalla for bird watchers.
