Umbria is a perfect region for living, a land rich in natural beauties, but also in great and ancient civilisations and in creative energy; a melting pot where past and present mix with plans for the future, blending effortlessly. Just over 800,000 people live in an area covering 8456 km2 at the very heart of the Italian peninsula, spread out over the 92 townships which form the region's
urban framework. Populated centres are evenly distributed throughout the region: there are no great agglomerations, and Perugia, the capital, has only 151,000 inhabitants. As there aren't any unpopulated areas.
All the towns lie close together within this compact region and it is for this reason that communications have always been good. The multi-centred structure of Umbrian settlement has its origins in the distant past.
The driving force behind the region is a system of independent towns, firmly established in antiquity and anchored on strategically important routes and trails across the land. In no other part of Italy is such a well preserved pattern of land and settlement, of people and environment to be found.
It is totally unique, the result of ancient and modem cultural factors which trace an unbroken line from past to present.
Umbria is a place with a great tradition for hospitality and offers a large variety of accommodation possibilities: hotels, farm holiday, farmhouse, residence self-catering accommodation, b&b, rooms for rent, holiday homes, camp sites and tourist villages: there remains only to choose and undertake an interesting journey amidst myth and history. Umbria may also be discovered at any time of the year.
