The History & Art of Hidden Umbria
21 – 26 June 2020
The Lonely Planet says of the region: “Italy’s green heart, Umbria is a land unto itself, the only Italian region that borders neither the sea nor another country. This isolation has kept outside influences at bay and ensured that many of Italy’s old-world traditions survive today.”
Guardian Travel says: “The landlocked region between Tuscany, Le Marche and Lazio has art treasures to match anywhere on the peninsula – in Assisi and Perugia above all. Yet it never does a Portofino on your pocket.”
We will stay five nights at the centrally located 4* Hotel dei Duchi in Spoleto. Facilities at the hotel include a bar and restaurant.
