Join seasoned guides, James and Diana Tamlyn, on this seven-day trip around the gastronomic, cultural, historical and scenic highlights of Italy’s Umbria.

Umbria, known as 'the green heart of Italy', is nestled into the foothills of the Silillini Mountains and is where you will be able to explore the birthplace of St Benedict, as well as the birth and resting place of St Francis. Basing yourself in Norcia, you will wander through beech woods to Sant' Eutizio, visit the village of Castellucio, explore the Abbey at San Pietro and take a walk through the ancient village of Bevagna.

See how a traditional Italian farm still operates, and learn about the historical significance of the Umbrian towns where there are many beautiful chapels, frescoes and scenic landscapes to explore. The region is famed too for its friendly people and gastronomic food, all of which will be sampled in this walking itinerary.
