Umbria region and Todi
Umbria is an enchanting and mystical region, noted for its ancient castles and towers which seem to overcrowd the landscape and of course its ancient charming medieval hill towns, fine olive oil and wine. It borders with Tuscany and therefore situated in a most perfect location in central Italy. Known as the green heart of Italy, the region has a wonderful and dramatic mixture of panorama, rolling hills covered with vineyards, olive groves and sunflower and poppy fields, , mountains with pine forests and its many lakes and waterfalls.

Todi, an ancient Etruscan town, with its 3 layer walls marking each period, Roman and medieval, is placed on top of a hill dominating the Tiber River and its valley and is a flourishing Umbrian centre where quality of life is considered as the best in the world and was given this prestigious title some years ago. Many classic Hollywood films have been rolled out in this famous Piazza. Todi is the home town of the famous medieval Italian poet Jacapone. Todi boasts three beautiful churches, its Duomo in the piazza, Jacapone’s church of Sam Fortunato and the beautiful Basilica of Santa Maria Consolazzione.

Todi’s piazza is classed as one of the finest in Italy and boasts two palaces, one a museum exhibiting fine art and antiques. There are many fine bars and restaurants many craft shops. Todi hosts a very busy events calendar such as the prestigious antiques fair in April, Todi in Flower in May, Todi Tango Festival in June, international hot air baloon Grand Prix in July, alfresco concerts under the stars during August, Todi Arts Festival in September, live theatre and shows throughout the year.
