Umbria Travel Notes
Umbria used to be called the "new Tuscany", but now is a popular tourist destination in its own right (and Puglia is the "new Tuscany"). The largest city is Perugia, but Umbria has many famous towns: Assisi, Spoleto, Spello, Todi, Orvieto. The countryside is peaceful and beautiful and many of these towns have wonderful art to see in their churches and museums.
