Umbria, a Jewel in the heart of central Italy.
Umbria is the only region of peninsular Italy that doesn’t overlook the sea. The succession of verse hills characterizes the Umbrian landscape, interrupted here and there by fertile basins. Here is also the Lake Trasimeno, the largest lake in peninsular Italy. Given the area’s position, far from the sea and closed between the mountains and hills, the climate has cold winters and hot summers.
