Umbria a small slice of paradise
To many, Umbria is still a little part of Italy that they have yet to discover. To me, it’s the perfect Italian break. With the perfect mix of everything you could want from a relaxing holiday, Umbria is my number one destination. Here are a few reasons why I love this little slice of paradise. It’s great for sightseeing. Living in England, great architecture can often be taken for granted because you see the same buildings day in, day out. It’s not until you visit a town like Umbria that you realise how amazingly talented the architects of yesteryear really were. Christianity transformed Umbria’s architecture and regional identity over a thousand years ago and the results are still visible today. There are many churches throughout Umbria that are simply stunning to look at from the outside. If you fancy stepping inside, visit Abbey of S. Eutizio near Preci, home to the Renaissance shrine to Eutitius and the model of St. Spes. Spes has been copied worldwide but the original remain the best in my eyes! The food is second to none Italy has always been known for its love of great locally produced food and Umbria is no different. Excellent food and wine play as big a part in the regions charm as its churches, parks and landscapes. Orvieto is probably the most well-known foodie spot in Umbria, holding its annual food event -Orvieto Con Gusto. This celebration aims to promote the areas philosophy of life - its health and pleasure of food choices combined with the local cultural practices. The natural parks Umbria is known as the “green heart of Italy” thanks to its fantastic greenery that plays such an important part in the landscape of Umbria. The Monti Sibillini National Park is a beautiful place to visit and is home to 1800 species of flowers. With natural springs, rivers and lakes round every corner, you are never short of places to do your favourite water sports. The locals treat theses area with respect so it can be enjoyed by generations to come. To find out what else Umbria has to offer, there are plenty of Holiday Reviews available. These can give you advice and offer tips on the best places to eat, stay and visit throughout the region.
