If you're looking to find a beautiful countryside escape, you can't get much better than the region of Umbria, Italy.
I have many reasons to love Umbria, or “Il Cuore Verde D’Italia” (The Green Heart of Italy). It’s winding roads, cascading hills, and interesting villages are among the most general of its delights.
Around 1000 BC a wave of immigrants settled in the upper Tiber valley as far as the Adriatic Sea, and also in the neighborhood of Assisi. These were the Umbrians, living in small fortified settlements on high ground.
Gubbio is best known for its palio, the Corsa dei Ceri, a spectacular run held every year on May
