Itinerary

What To Do On Your Umbria Vacation

Day trips: Spoleto, and the delightful hill towns of Todi, Trevi, Gubbio, Montefalco and Amelia are all nearby. In addition, there’s Bevagna, Orvieto, Assisi, Perugia and Cortona. Longer day trips to Rome (2.5 to 3 hours), Florence (3.5 hours) and Siena (2.5 hours) are also possible.

Sightseeing: Our “hometown” of Spoleto offers a Roman theater and the famous Duomo (cathedral) as well as many worthwhile churches and castles. The world-famous Spoleto Performing Arts Festival takes place each July. The Basilica of San Fransesco, now completely restored, is one of the highlights of the elegant and intimate nearby city of Assisi. Don’t miss the Duomo at Orvieto or the chocolates at Perugia!

Off-the-beaten-track treasures that can’t be beat: Visit the Cascate delle Marmore (one of Europe’s most popular waterfalls), the pottery towns of Deruta and Gubbio. Walk the city walls of Spello or visit Torgiano, the town where Rubesco wine was born.

My wife and I enjoyed the feeling of being independent to do as we wished at our convenience, yet also knowing that the host family and Regional Coordinator were a phone call away if their help was required. Caterina de Felice the Regional Coordinator provided us with all the necessary information to have a safe and enjoyable experience in Umbria. Her instructions about the international road signs were very helpful and explicit and made for a safe driving experience in Italy. We loved that Umbria has yet to be discovered by many, mostly American, tourists. We did not have to compete for seating at a restaurant, stand in line at an attraction, or forgo sightseeing because there was no parking. Umbria was very scenic, literally unspoiled by tourism and commercialism, it was the way I imagined Italy to be perhaps one hundred years ago. Also, the area that we chose to live in gave me the opportunity to utilize my knowledge of the Italian language, since many people we encountered did not speak English.

I like the Untour philosophy and there were many things I liked about our experience. Maybe we will do another one in the future, but we'd choose one that did not include driving.

This Untour was the perfect combination of support and freedom. We were able to have the experience of ""living"" in Paris, with no agenda but our own. Exactly what we wanted!

We were very happy with Untours and will definitely consider going on another Untours trip. While traveling with Untours allowed us to be independent, we had our local contacts as a safety net. Also going with Untours took all the detail hassle out of our trip. Our apartment, transportation, suggestions for day trip tours , were all taken care of so we just had to show up. Staying in an apartment allowed us to shop live more like the locals. We shopped locally, bought certain items at the Farmacia, and mingled with local vendors. We had coffee in the morning with locals. It was wonderful.

I would use Untours again. Everything was so well organized, we had all of our reservations made, Dee sent us all the train time tables that we needed, and I even got a list of doctors in the area because of my health conditions. I was completely satisfied and impressed. Such excellent service is rare these days. I loved staying in spectacular Kandersteg in perfect accommodations.
