Discover the Green Heart of Italy
A visit to Umbria is life changing.
There is really no “best” tour that will show you Umbria in a single day. There is, in our opinion, no "top ten" because Umbria is like a mosaic of precious things, each one is unique.
The secret to visit Umbria is to travel slowly and to enjoy the backroads, the tiny hamlets, the slopes blanketed in olive trees.
Take in the art, history and spectacular landscape, tasty food and wine, village festivals. Most importantly, meet the people, cook, walk, laugh, breathe in all the scents, there is no better way to immerse yourself in the culture.
We hope you will be inspired with our day trips below. You can have any trip custom-made, private and for any number of days. All our activities are for small groups anyway. Just drop us a note and we'll get back to you with any details you might require.
