This area of Umbria, famous all over the world because of the personage of St. Francis, is the goal of thousands of pilgrims each year. Assisi, a land of Saints and religious movements, represent the heart of Umbria's spirituality. Set above a spur of Mount Subasio, which overlooks the verdant Umbrian valley in the broad basin of the Chiascio and Topino rivers, Assisi appears from a distance to be terraced with a cascade of churches, houses and belltowers. To visit also the smaller cities, true gems of art and history. These small towns gurantee pleasant moments of diversion and repose. Now as in the past, the shops in Assisi and in the nearby towns display fabrics with a tight, geometric embroidery representing imaginative patterns and animals shapes ("Assisi stitch"). And in Umbrian cuisine, olive oil plays the leading role.
