Umbria, the jewel of central Italy
Umbria is the only region of peninsular Italy with no landlocked sea. It borders to the north and west with Tuscany, to the east with the Marche, to the south with Lazio. The Umbrian landscape is characterized by the succession of verse hills, interrupted here and there by fertile basins. Umbria is crossed by the Tiber, where all the waterways of the regions converge. Here is also the Lake Trasimeno, the largest in peninsular Italy. Given the position of the region, far from the sea and closed between the mountains and hills, the climate has cold winters and hot summers.
