Visiting Umbria in 3 days is not easy, because the region is very rich of history and cultural sites and it’s rich of nature! It is in fact known as the green heart of Italy.
The first thing to choose is certainly what kind of holiday you want to do. We try to give you some suggestions based on the choice of your stay so that you can get to know the main things of our region.
If you like visiting cities, therefore a holiday that is above all artistic and cultural, then the main cities of Umbria cannot be missed. A must visit is certainly Assisi, Perugia and Orvieto, the three most visited cities in Umbria. In three days, however, you will also have time to visit other places, so we suggest the city of Spoleto, beautiful with the Duomo and home to the famous Festival dei Due Mondi. Gubbio and Spello, a small village adorned with flowers that adorn the alleys of the town, are also worth a visit if the time available allows it.
A blast from the past, with the village perhaps among the best preserved, you can do with a stop in Bevagna, famous together with Montefalco for being in the Sagrantino area, the most famous wine of Umbria.
If, on the other hand, your interest is more food and wine, to visit Umbria in 3 days, we can start right from the Sagrantino area. A visit to one or more wineries in the area for a tasting of wine and some typical Umbrian products. A must is also a visit to an oil mill, where you can taste the very famous green gold of Umbria, extra virgin olive oil. There are numerous oil mills in our region and in each one you can find different characteristics.
In your food and wine itinerary, we also recommend a visit to Perugina to learn about the history of this magnificent factory and for a chocolate tasting.
The holiday cannot fail to end with a dinner in a farmhouse, a characteristic place where you can taste our delicious food and wine products.
