Umbria Tips

1.     If you are driving to Perugia remember that the city’s centre has a Traffic Zone Limit so better to leave the car in one of the big car parks which you’ll find on the way and use the lifts.
2.     La Scarzuola is a private park so to visit it you need to book in advance writing to
3.     The Calendimaggio festival in Assisi takes place in the first week of May so plan your visit around that time. For more info
4.     In Foligno visit the Duomo and Palazzo Trinci which still maintains their original frescos from the Middle Age.
5.     If you feel like a swim or you want to enjoy the sunset by the water, stop in one of the villages on the coast of Trasimeno’s lake. There are many wonderful small places to eat.  Nothing but the hyper-local fare on their menus.
Trevi deserves a visit on your way to Assisi not only for its historical and artistic heritage but also because is the city of olive oil. There are tours including oil tasting and meals in many local oil mills
