Umbria borders on the regions of Tuscany and Lazio in Central Italy. It is divided into the two provinces Perugia and Terni. The green heart of the country, as Umbria is often referred to, is characterised by dense forests, a high number of olive groves and towns surrounded by green hills. Culinary specialties are truffles and wine from the region. Casa in Italia offers holiday homes and luxury villas in Umbria for a peaceful and relaxing holiday at the heart of Italy.
Sightseeing on your holiday in Umbria
In addition to its impressive flora and fauna, Umbria also offers towns and villages rich in history and culture. So, on your holiday in Umbria you will be able to enjoy both the fantastic landscape and the fascinating culture. For example, you can walk in the footsteps of Francis of Assisi, who left numerous traces in the city of the same name with his order. In general, the towns and villages of Umbria, with their narrow streets and typical stone buildings, exude a very special charm. Many churches date back to the 16th century or older, where valuable artifacts can be admired. For example, in a church in Collazzone, there is a 13th century wooden Madonna and paintings of saints by the painter Pietro Paolo Sensini. The many castles and fortresses also invite you on an exploratory tour that will bring the history of the region closer.
Exploring the cities and regions of Umbria
The cities of Perugia and Terni are also worth a visit if you want to take in the atmosphere of a historic and cultural city. The university town Perugia is famous for its art and culture, with several festivals taking place in the city every year.

Holiday villa in the green hills of Umbria
There is a reason that the Umbria region bears the name of green heart of Italy. Nestled in forests and vast green plains, the region is a picturesque image. Many villages are simply idyllic and quintessentially Italian. So much so that one could almost have the impression to be time travelling when away from the big touristic hotspots.
Day trips to Collazzone and Corciano
In and around Collazzone, for example, gems can be found that make it worthwhile to plan a day trip. From the holiday houses in Umbria, the area can easily be reached by car. The parish church of San Lorenzo, with its bell tower from the 18th century, is known beyond Collazzone. The bell tower was built above one of the watchtowers.
The village of Corciano, surrounded by fortified walls, sits on top of a hill. In addition to the impressive castle, the town has many historical testimonies, such as the church of San Francesco, built in honour of Saint Francis after he returned to the town. The watchtower of Porta Santa Maria, built as a result of numerous lootings, offers a panoramic view of the surrounding area.
