Italy is a Feast
Join the Feast
A visit to Umbria, central Italy’s hidden gem, is a feast for all senses: marvelous hilltop towns - like Assisi, Spello, Spoleto and Orvieto - lively festivals, an intensely delicious cuisine, and fantastic wines and olive oil.
Located half-way between Florence and Rome, Umbria offers visitors a perfect opportunity for a vacation encompassing nature, art, crafts and culinary traditions.
All of this is at easy reach and still away from the crowds of Italy's better known destinations.
Close your eyes and imagine yourself in a journey through rolling countryside where you stop to admire the local artisans at work, to savor the wines and food, to enter an Italian kitchen and learn to cook like a local.
At Festa Tours we offer professional and knowledgeable trip planning and travel consulting services which are exclusive to guests at Alla Madonna del Piatto B&B and Cooking school in Assisi.
At agriturismo Alla Madonna del Piatto we have been welcoming travelers from all over the world for 16 years. Our guests are like family and we love to help them experience the beauty and traditions of our region in the best and most authentic way.
Custom travel experiences
at a great value
We don’t offer standard package tours, last minute discounts or deals. We believe in supporting our local community by recommending other locals (like us) at a fair price.
Those we work with are often personal friends who offer exceptional services and expertise in travel, art, food, outdoor activities. And as we don’t make commissions on the work of our friends you get to pay direct prices.
You can plan your own trip by selecting a few of the tours available on this site or let us plan your trip for a reasonable fee.
Special Events and Festivals
From spring to fall almost every weekend in Umbria offers festivities which may include sagra festivals, village religious processions, or historic re-enactments of battles, dances and games from long ago.
Besides being fun, the sagra festivals are considered Italy’s best-kept food secret as you will get to drink and dine elbow-to-elbow with town-people and learn about local produce and foods often available for just a few days in the year. You can hardly get a more local experience!
