Nature

Everchanging, untouched landscapes in the green of winding valleys make Umbria a region that will never fail to amaze. This region comprises mainly hills, mountains, hollows and plains and extends along the Tiber’s central basin. At the heart of the boot, it is the only region with no coastline. In this panorama of changing vibrant colors many villages stand on hilltops, overlooking the plains below.
  1. Lake Trasimeno – (approx 30 mins)

    Lake Trasimeno is located in the green heart of Umbria, amidst beds of reeds and charming white water lilies. It’s a true natural paradise home to wild ducks, cormorants, kites and kingfishers. Gentle hills form the backdrop to the lake, along with sporadic woods and sunflower and corn fields, vineyards and olive groves. The landscape features the relaxing intense green of the vegetation, and everything, from the villages overlooking the lake to the museums, its continuing traditions to its local products, all remind us of its past.

  2. Marmore's Falls – (approx 1 1/2 hours )

    Green meadows, thick forests, teeming streams, hidden gorges and towering waterfalls all together create a painting of rare beauty: we are in Valnerina, one of the most beautiful areas in Umbria region. The Nera River Park, better known as “Waters' Park”, because of its hydrographic abundance, offers visitors an unspoilt natural landscape, populated by a rich variety of flora and fauna.

  1. The Plains of Castelluccio – (approx 2 hours )

    Located at the height of about 1350 metres, there are three Plains which cover a surface of 15 square km: the Pian Grande (province of Perugia), the Pian Piccolo (province of Perugia) and the Pian Perduto (province of Macerata). The Pian Grande, that extends for about 7 km with an average width of 3 km and a height between 1300 and 1252, is the major Italian karstic plateau, after the Piana del Fucino and is entirely surrounded by the ridges of Sibillini Mountains. The origin of the basin is due to the lowering of the underlying rock masses, in contrast with the lifts that gave origin to the ridge of Mount Vettore. The main karst morphologies are represented by various bowl-shaped sinkholes, with waterproof bottom and supplied with water for many months in the year, funnel-shaped sinkholes with A waterproof bottom and especially the Ditch of Mergani, a grain-shaped sinkhole where rain waters end up. What makes the Plains famous is the Flowering that, between May and June, fills all the area with poppies, cornflowers, marguerites and lentils and is an unforgettable sight.

  2. Mt Subasio Park – (approx 45 mins)

    From Assisi to Spello, along the trails of Monte Subasio is a long hike that most visitors are capable of and which connects two medieval Umbrian towns, the Franciscan spirit of the Eremo, nature and the scenery of the Park. When you arrive at Assisi prepare yourself for walking over the trail that connects the birthplace of St. Francis to Spello, the town famous for its carpets of flowers. Set out from Porta Cappuccini, where a dirt road goes along the old medieval walls of the city and then into the woods. Once you have made it to the top, you'll get to a rest area where you can catch your breath before setting off downhill towards one of the most symbolic places of St. Francis, the Eremo delle Carceri, where he would retreat from civilisation to pray and meditate in the natural caves and under ancient oak trees.
