We’ve spent the last couple of days exploring some of the smaller towns around Perugia and Assisi.
Lovely rooftops. Exquisite gateways. Historic drinking fountains. And at every turn a sumptuous view across the valley.
Todi has its impressive Piazza del Popolo and Duomo with a luminous rose window. Bettona is picture perfect inside its medieval walls. And Spello has quaint alleyways with pink limestone and flower baskets.
November is a good time to visit Umbria, because the weather is still sunny and we have the place to ourselves. It’s a perfect temperature for walking up hills, average 14 degrees during the day.
