The striking town of Orvieto, perched on a volcanic cliff overlooking the Umbrian countryside, is known as the Green Heart of Italy.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Winery Solaria Patrizia Cencioni and Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona. Kids will enjoy Cala del Gesso and Spiaggetta di Masi Michele. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Orvieto: Cascate del Mulino (in Saturnia), Pitigliano Centro Storico (in Pitigliano) and Spiaggia di Macchiatonda (in Capalbio). Next up on the itinerary: enjoy the sand and surf at La Feniglia, don't miss a visit to Pozzo di San Patrizio, admire the striking features of Rocca dei Papi, and admire the masterpieces at Giardino dei Tarocchi.

Perugia

Though it features Etruscan defensive walls and a medieval town center, Perugia is perhaps best known for its fine chocolate and annual chocolate festival.
Step off the beaten path and head to Piazza IV Novembre and Ponte delle Torri. Venture out of the city with trips to Eremo Le Celle (in Cortona), Gubbio (Basilica of Saint Ubaldo & Piazza Grande) and Assisi (San Damiano, Eremo delle Carceri, & more). There's much more to do: take a stroll through Vieille Ville, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilica di San Francesco, see the interesting displays at Museo della Porziuncola, and step into the grandiose world of Rocca Paolina.
