These towns offer a fantastic view into their Etruscan and Roman pasts, alongside historical treasures, awe- inspiring cathedrals, and scenic piazzas to enjoy an al fresco aperitivo.
Umbria is a food lover’s dream, known for specialities like truffles, cured meats, sausages, handmade pastas, extra virgin olive oils, mushrooms, game, and cow and sheep milk cheeses. The wine of the region is celebrated, particularly the wine made from the native red grape, Sagrantino. The famed wine regions of Montefalco and Montepulciano can be easily reached from Levinge and guests can organize wine tastings and tours at excellent vineyards and estates.
For the active traveler, Umbria offers fantastic outdoor activities including hiking, biking, canyoning, and paragliding. Umbria is also known for its traditional linens and cashmeres that can be found in Todi, and beautiful ceramics and pottery found in towns like Orvieto and Gubbio.
