1 Galleria Nazionale dell’Umbria
The region’s finest and largest collection of medieval and Renaissance Umbrian paintings.
Best looking of Umbria’s medieval hill-towns, and without Assisi’s crowds and commercialism.
3 Basilica di San Francesco
Burial place of St Francis and one of Italy’s great buildings, with frescoes by Giotto and Simone Martini.
4 Valle di Spoleto
A swathe of country with four of the region’s most compelling villages: Spello, Bevagna, Trevi and Montefalco.
5 San Francesco, Montefalco
One of Umbria’s best small galleries, with a major fresco cycle by Benozzo Gozzoli.
A verdant, mountain-edged valley dotted with hill-villages and spectacular views.
7 Piano Grande
A glorious upland plain, the centrepiece of the Monti Sibillini national park.
8 Duomo, Orvieto
On a par with the cathedrals in Milan and Siena, Orvieto’s Duomo has a glorious facade and a majestic fresco cycle by Luca Signorelli.
