What to visit in the surroundings

Umbria, in the very heart of Italy, is the only region that is not touched by the sea and is defined as the "Green Heart" of Italy: a few factories, a lot of nature and agriculture. Rural landscapes among the most beautiful in the worlds, with huge fields of olive trees, grape vines and sunflowers; an incredible historic and cultural heritage comprising small and big towns, churches, medieval palaces, sanctuaries and hermitages in the countryside, ideal places for writing and praying.
