Montefalco

— 8 nights

Balcony of Umbria

Fondly referred to as the balcony of Umbria, Montefalco is one of the region's most impressive medieval cities, perched atop a hill overlooking olive groves and vineyards.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Palazzo Trinci and MUVIT Museo del Vino Torgiano Museum. Popular historic sites such as Centro Storico and Centro Storico are in your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to Norcia (Museo Civico e Diocesano La Castellina, Piazza San Benedetto, &more), Abbazia di S. Eutizio (in Preci) and Cantine Giorgio Lungarotti (in Torgiano). There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Abbazia di Sassovivo, see the interesting displays at Complesso Museale di San Francesco, surround yourself with nature on Wild Foods Italy, and do a tasting at Cantina le Cimate.

There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Church of St. Augustine (Sant'Agostino), take in the architecture and atmosphere at Chiesa San Marziale, don't miss a visit to Montone - Centro Storico, and explore the world behind art at Fondazione Palazzo Albizzini Collezione Burri.
