Umbria holidays

Umbria holidays

Umbria has the charms of Tuscany minus the throngs. Wine and olive country drapes hills rising west to the snow-dusted Apennines and descending east to the Adriatic. Medieval towns like Assisi, Spoleto, Macerata and Gubbio jostle with arty Urbino (birthplace of Raphael) and lively Perugia. Brilliant nature getaways await in the Parco Nazionale dei Monti Sibillini and the stunning coastal Parco del Conero.

Umbria cooking holiday, Italy
This is foodie heaven. The cooking classes were fabulous came back with a lot of good ideas. This is holiday is run by a local couple on their own organic smallholding. As far as possible food is sourced from their own vegetable garden or local farmers and the vine from local vineyards. (more)Annette Chapman
The cookery course was fun and we made tasty but not too fiddly food, so what you learn you can put to use when you return home. (more)nicola cosgrove
They were the perfect hosts! They always catered for our every need and went out of their way to make sure that our stay was an enjoyable one. We would not hesitate to book this holiday again! (more)Joanne Anagnostu

Umbria hotel, 15th century country hotel, Italy
This is a very special place. The staff are friendly and helpful in a quiet manner, respecting privacy whilst giving excellent service. Rates are reasonable. The hotel is an authentically and tastefully decorated and furnished renovation of an old country manor house (more)Paul Bish

Holiday in Umbria
Memorable parts? Wine tasting in Spello. Tips? You will benefit from not following the crowds thru Rome, Venice and in between. Some of the best shops, people and sights were along the narrower, less popular streets. Local benefits? I know it did. We stumbled on a very local benefit cook-out for a church restoration in Venice. We enjoyed dinner there which also included a live band, and felt good that proceeds were going to a good cause. Overall rating? Great. It... (more)John LaMonica

We loved the view over the Umbrian hills from our cottage balcony - just like a movie set!....Wonderful stay helped by perfect weather. Would recommend to any animal loving friends. (more)Patricia Kiralfy

Umbria cooking and painting holiday, Italy
Memorable parts? This was my first trip to Italy, and as they say, first impressions do make lasting impressions. And Umbria was the right blend of beauty, serenity, culture and great cuisine. As a solo traveller, I basically wanted a relaxing break with some fun activities and learning too. I got all that and more with the Cooking and Painting holiday that I booked through Responsible travel, based at Podere le Olle in Umbria. I totally loved the experience, made especially memorable by... (more)Ambika Thandavan

Umbria walking holiday, Italy
It was fantastic. We would do it again in a heartbeat. (more)Terri Trier
The most memorable part of this holiday was walking through the olive groves from Spello to Assisi which was amazing as was the Spello loop that took us up to a tiny village and then back around to Spello. (more)Lauren Marshall
From 640 - 700 excluding flights

Cycling holiday in Umbria, Italy
Memorable parts? Cycling through some beautiful areas of Italy with a great, mixed group. Tips? Get some cycling practice in - most of the riding is on quiet roads, so worth getting used to traffic. Local benefits? Not sure it particularly benefited local people, although meals were often in local restaurants. Overall rating? Absolutely fantastic and memorable. (more)Michelle Bickle
From 820 excluding flights
