Umbria is easily reached via train ride from Rome or Florence and is the “green heart” of Italy. Towns such as Orvieto, Gubbio, Spoleto, Perugia and Assisi represent some of the finest medieval architecture in Italy and hide many a jewel in art and beauty. Castles abound, often appearing out of nowhere and every town has a magnificent main square with church or cathedral.
The valley around Spoleto is particularly characteristic of Umbria’s incredible natural beauty with its wooded countryside, regal Valnerina mountains and the quintessential medieval towns of Spoleto and Assisi.
Civil weddings in Umbria are performed in palaces and castles selected by the local authorities. Spoleto, Perugia, Assisi and others boast museum like quality locations. Catholic churches are available for a Catholic ceremony and the selection of Protestant and symbolic wedding locations is only limited by your imagination.
The food of this central region is 100% local, seasonal, and exceptionally good.

Best of all, prices in Umbria are very favorable compared to other Italian regions. The Sagrantino grape is Umbria’s most famous red grape and is dried to produce a semi sweet ruby red wine. A delight to drink.
