The emerald hills of Umbria will be your new love. "Postcard" landscapes and crystal-clean air will make your stay in this region a perfect fairy tale.
Italians call Umbria "il Cuore Verde d'ltalia" ("green heart of Italy"). Everything is perfect here: food, wine, people and history. This is a separate Italian world in which life moves slowly without a shadow of pretence. Unlike its neighbour, Tuscany, the Italian capital of black truffle remained a prude who reveals her treasures only to the most curious visitors.
Let’s try whether Umbria will open her heart to you!
We will meet in Perugia, a city of art and history, even older than ancient Rome.
Guided tour around the city.
If there were luxury trattorias, this would be a reference place among them. Chamber restaurant with homemade pasta and divine dishes of Perugian cuisine.
A visit to the production of one of the most delicious olive oils in this region. It’s a family business, so the owners will tell you all the secrets of this amazing product. They will explain the nuances about filtration and bitterness. It is not for nothing that their slogan is “Olive oil is passion”.
Umbria - it's about chocolate. We will stop in the chocolate production, where the sweets are manufactured according to ancient recipes. We will observe the most authentic chocolate traditions. Tasting and licking fingers - all included.
We will settle in the fabulous 4 * hotel in a building of 17th-century abbey. Just imagine!
Gubbio is a city of the craziest people in the world, the centre of ceramics making, the shelter for truffles, home of the Candle Festival. It spreads in an endless green valley and delights the eyes with perfectly preserved medieval appearance. Stroll.
Dinner at the famous osteria. Are you ready to try the tastiest meat in your life?
What’s the cappuccino with lush white foam and the freshest pastry!
Visiting the cheese factory and the production of the famous black pig salami. The production is located in a picturesque place near the forest, so you will take lots of stunning photos there. We will taste the products that are grown and produced in this region or the so-called “zero kilometres” goods.
Lunch on your choice:
Transfer to Assisi. It is such a cute place, you’ll love at the first glance - pink marble stairs, neat medieval houses, porches entwined with flowers, thin nuns and unhurried Franciscan monks in their everyday rush.
We will check in a magnificent rural hotel with a pool. Then we will go to explore the city.
Dinner at our favourite restaurant with a breathtaking view of the valley, which makes the heart beat faster! One more bottle of wine, please!
Tartufo is not just a beautiful name, it is an official term for a licensed truffle hunter with a dog. Today we will go with one of such professionals to the forest, for a real truffle hunt.
Truffle hunting is a traditional activity in Umbria, as the wooded hills of the region are an ideal habitat for many types of high-quality truffles. Tartufo will tell you the secrets of the main truffles types, their features and tastes, his faithful dogs will show where and how to find this amazing mushroom.
Right after the haunt, a real truffle feast awaits us! Delicacies found in the forest with numerous masterpieces of local cuisine will bring you a gastronomic orgasm.
Are you tired? No? Then, let’s continue our adventure.
The winery. Umbrian legendary wines are amazing with flawless taste. We will visit the family production, “inspect” the cellars, taste the best of vines stored there and chat with winemakers. You will appreciate the richness of Umbrian wines!
The end of this perfect tour. You will keep ''Dolce Vita'' in your heart forever.
