Your group stay in Umbria
Umbria is often compared to its neighbour, Tuscany. Although there are hills where cypresses grow, as in Tuscany, there are hills where cypresses grow, but Umbria offers a steeper and greener face and your group will notice this during your group stay in Umbria. Umbria's main airport is in Perugia. He offers a few international flights. However, depending on where you are coming from, the airports of Florence and Rome are interesting alternatives for travelling to Umbria with your group. Less touristic than Lazio or Tuscany, Umbria is nevertheless used to welcoming tourists and pilgrims on their way to Assisi. You will therefore easily find a hotel to organize your group trip to Umbria.
Umbria offers a landscape of green hills planted with olive trees, on the tops of which stand medieval villages that have managed to preserve their authenticity over the centuries: Gubbio, Orvieto, etc. Even the historic centre of Perugia, the capital of Umbria, is situated on the top of a hill which can be reached by a mini-metro. Your group will fall under the spell of this unspoilt city that oscillates between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Assisi is no exception. From a distance you can see its innumerable bell towers standing on the heights of the Umbrian countryside. Its lower basilica, where St. Francis is buried, is the destination of many believers and pilgrims. Every year, the city pays homage to Saint Francis of Assisi on October 4 on the feast of the Saint. If you would like to go to Assisi with your group on this occasion during your group stay in Umbria, plan to book your stay in advance as Assisi is then overrun by believers from all over the world.
