UMBRIA in October 2018

Group photograph at Todi

The beginning of October was the perfect time to visit Umbria, as the sun was gentle and the leaves were just turning red and gold. As we meandered through the hill-top towns and villages we were able to enjoy the wonderful sights of ancient fortified towns such as as Spoleto, Spello and Montefalco.

The cleverly-constructed escalator at Perugia saved us an up-hill climb to the magnificent Galleria Nazionale and we thoroughly enjoyed our guided tour of the Basilica in Assisi taking in the stunning frescoes of Giotto. In bustling, delightful Urbino we visited the Casa Natale di Raffaello and the Palazzo Ducale. Throughout Umbria we were treated to delicious food and wine wherever we went. It was a most enjoyable tour.
