The Umbria is the defined region "heart of Italy", a territory that guards testimonies of one culture millenarian.
In the territory of the Umbria they still live the art, the history, the traditions and the culture of the people and the civilizations who have inhabited it: the Umbri and the Etruschi, the Roman, the Longobardi, enough to carry out a guided visit to Orvieto underground the famous city basement with its maze of coves dug from antichi people to the inside of the cliff in order to dive itself in one extraordinary last.
The Umbria is between the little regions where the beautifulst cities are ollowed behind the other contornate ones from tiny villages, and common small with churches, palaces and public squares that tell the history of a glorious past, they conserve and they hand on the treasures of the artistic and cultural patrimony and guard the saperi and the instruments of the handicraft tradition.
Important example is its capoluogo Perugia that accommodates the Rocca Paolina with the basements del medieval village that inspired Giosuč Carducci nella its poetry "the song of love", its two town-walls building one medieval and one Etruscan with the relative doors, its many palaces and the Churches.
Impossible but not to name Assisi with its Basilica of Saint Francisco, the Church of Chiara Saint and the Road Mattonata, Todi with the Tempio di Santa Maria della Consolazione and the Palace del People, Cascia where we find the Basilica of Rita Saint and the Monastero di Santa Rita, religious centers of world-wide reputation, but we find also collegiata of Saint Maria one degli buildings older than all the going back city to Lombardic age.
In the territory of the Umbria not there is country, fraction or formations of houses, where a castle, a palace does not exist at least, one tower, one church, a convent or a abbey, more or less conserved: ovunque we can find history and legend that they are melted above all to the art but to the beautifulst panorama that the contraddistingue.
Fundamental stage in the naturalistic and landscaped travel of the Umbro territory is the cascade of the Marmore natural beauty that has inspired very many artists where the waters falls along three knows you for an unevenness of approximately 165 meters, but also the Polvese Island of destined the Trasimeno Lago to scientific-didactic park where we find the Garden of the aquatic plants realized in one swimming pool constructed to the end of the years fifty to the inside of one abandoned sandstone quarry.
Living the Umbria is to dive itself in the green landscape, in the quiet ones of its campaigns, in the ancient rhythm of a world in which the quality of the life has still much importance.
