Umbria travel guide

4.4
Churches · Sacred & Religious Sites · Landmarks
Characterized by a landscape of green hills, attractive towns, and World Heritage-listed monuments, Umbria is the only region in the country with neither a coastline nor an international border. Umbria is home to the town of Assisi, a World Heritage Site and a major religious center that houses a number of attractions. Its Franciscan church has one of the world's finest medieval collections of frescos, a must-see on any itinerary here. Umbria is one of Italy's smaller regions, yet what it lacks in size, it more than makes up in the natural beauty of its agricultural lands and quaint villages.
