Umbria offers an intriguing mix of history, art and culture that serves as the perfect complement to its fine food and wine. The people here have become accustomed to a slower pace of life, which affords them the time to nourish the soul and take in and enjoy all the nuances of life. During the Renaissance, Umbria was the beating heart of Italian historical, cultural, religious and artistic events. While much has changed over the centuries, Umbria’s beauty and passion abide.
