Featured Destinations


Famed for its gastronomy, Norcia has assembled some of the most interesting Umbrian cuisines with traditional recipes fit for a king such as: black truffle, lentils, pecorino and caciotta cheeses. However this charming town in the high country, is most known for hunting wild boar and their production of sausages, salumi, and ham. A process of “norcineria,” was first discovered here and is still of local practice since the 13th century. The nature is beautiful and mystic as is the food. Little glacial lakes are hidden away in the patches of emerald green; and the town though mostly flat, is surrounded by the Sybilline mountains – an exploration for hikers, bikers, and horseback riders.


Cortona, with its flagstone lanes and medieval architecture, is just a short drive away, offering well-stocked shops, elegant boutiques and an ample range of inviting restaurants and pizzerias, where you can taste good local cooking and excellent regional wines. It also offers a program of colorful festivals and cultural events throughout the year.
