Valle Rosa is an ideal base from which to explore all Umbria
Spoleto will be only the first of the most prestigious stage of your visit to Umbria; choosing Valle Rosa as base you will devote every day to visit a place treasuring the great beauty that surrounds us. On your return in the evening we will be waiting to share your emotions and offer a further motivation and a positive note to your day in Umbria, thanks to the pool and the restaurant.
FROM VALLE ROSA TO THE UMBRIAN VALLEY:
After visiting Spoleto you go towards Fonti del Clitunno and the Unesco heritage Temple, then following the olive hills you can see Trevi on the right that looks like a crib perched on the hill and then turning to the left will see the beautiful foothills of Montefalco, town famous for good wine and which offers a beautiful view of the Umbrian Valley; nearby there is the charming Bevagna, village of ancient crafts.
You can devote another day to taking the same direction but continuing for Spello, famous for its flowers and the beautiful Roman ruins; from there to the mystical Assisi is a short step. The city of St. Francis, peace and Giotto frescoes.
FROM VALLE ROSA TOWARDS VALNERINA:
We turn our gaze to the south for discovering the magnificent Marmore waterfalls and the scenic Piediluco lake. To reach the waterfalls we recommend a visit of the charming Valnerina and so, relaxing following the road down to Terni, you can meet Scheggino, the Abbey of St. Peter, Ferentillo, to arrive finally, past the villages of Arrone and Casteldilago, in the park of Marmore falls. For returning to Valle Rosa take Flaminia road from Terni or via Montefranco where you can admire the falls from a distance.
FROM VALLE ROSA TOWARDS NORTH UMBRIA:
You can spend another day in the Umbrian capital Perugia, city of chocolate and jazz, the magnificent Umbria National Gallery; it’s just one of the many place not to be missed. From Perugia to Trasimeno Lake and the surrounding villages the distance is short. You can also get to the Upper Tiber Valley and towards the lovely towns of Gubbio, Umbertide, Montone, Citta di Castello. Another tour in Perugia area could be on the west side of Umbria, to pretty villages such as Deruta, Torgiano, Marsciano and many others …
FROM VALLE ROSA TOWARDS SOUTH UMBRIA
Looking to the south and the town of San Valentine (Terni) we recommend Narni, with its underground city, Amelia with mighty and ancient walls, San Gemini and the excavations of Carsulae for lovers of archeology.
Finally one day you can go west and visit the lovely towns of Orvieto with the amazing cathedral and the lovely Todi; returning to Spoleto you can cross the road that links us with Acquasparta.
The itineraries we mentioned are just ideas, everyone can arrange his itinerary according to his interests and curiosity. Many other towns are worth a visit but it would be difficult to list them all. The artistic and historical picturesque beauty make Umbrian cities and towns a true open-air museum but as mentioned above is just a suggestion, because the beauty of the journey is that everyone has their own motivations and interests, which will lead to privilege now this now that destination. We are also here to advise you, hoping to be the best ambassadors of our country.
We like to remember that in addition to the historical, artistic and landscape beauties in Umbria there are many events and high-level cultural festivals. The prestigious Festival of the Two Worlds in Spoleto and among the most important: the Umbria Jazz (Perugia – mid-July, Orvieto – late December)); The Festival of Nations (Città di Castello – end of August); the Todi Festival (end of August), the Gubbio Summer Festival (August), the Sagra Musicale Umbra (August-September) … and many others.
