Farm villa vacation rental in
the Region of Umbria, Italy
Region (the Italian equivalent of a State, County or
Province) of Umbria in central Italy is essentially rural
and characteristically presents vistas of verdant green
hills and is packed with interesting things to see and do. The largest town in Umbria is Perugia
(population about 170,000). Umbria is well-known for its many churches,
a few of them going back to Roman times (notably in Assisi,
home of Saint Francis), many of them Romanesque, many of them with beautiful frescoes or sculpture.
Roman remains are far more common in Umbria than in
neighbouring Tuscany, due, obviously, to the greater
proximity to Rome and to the presence of the via Flaminia
running from Rome through Umbria to the Adriatic at Rimini.
Roman remains include some fine bridges, the Roman bridge
at Narni being the largest Roman bridge ever built.
