Description of Holiday in Umbria

A holiday in Umbria reminds you why you used to love going to neighbouring Tuscany as from green and pleasant rolling hillsides to undiscovered medieval villages, Italy’s rural heartland has remained pretty much untouched since Michelangelo was still getting used to chalks.

Take the train from Venice to Rome by way of Gubbio and Assisi and watch your holiday in Umbria spring to life as you experience the religious architecture and cultural landmarks that have helped to make Umbria one of Italy’s, and Europe’s, most attractive rural regions.

Hello. If you'd like to chat about this holiday or need help finding one we're very happy to help. Rosy & team.

Responsible tourism: Holiday in Umbria

Our Venice accommodation is a small family run hotel, in walking distance of the station. We walk EVERYWHERE in Venice, so as not to add to the pollution of the canals, wave damage and silting of the lagoon caused by increasing numbers of cruise ships and vaporetto boats. We encourage travellers to try a gondola ride - no fossil fuels consumed, no toxic emissions, supporting the age-old gondolier trade (apprenticeship can only be handed down from father to son) and putting our cash into local family's pockets.

In Gubbio we stay at another small family run establishment, where our travellers may choose to eat at a local restaurant that is a supporter of the Slow Food movement. Our Assisi accommodation consists of another family run guesthouse... then we head to Spello to a small wine cellar to taste wine and oil and local gastronomic delights, a delicious way to support local producers.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Wine tasting in Spello.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


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.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


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.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Great. It was well organized but still flexible.
