Monte Subasio Park is steeped in the history of St. Francis, not just because it encompasses the historical centre of his native town, Assisi, but also because of the nature from which the Saint drew inspiration for his love of all creation.
Lake Trasimeno is located in the green heart of Umbria, amidst beds of reeds and charming white water lilies.
Water slowly erodes the rock, the scent of the depths of the mountain, images and figures created by calcareous formations: these are just some of the sensations that await you in the cave of Monte Cucco.
The lake's incredible beauty was represented by many artists as a stop of the Grand Tour, so called in 1670 by the priest and writer Richard Lassels, author of An Italian Voyage.
One of the most panoramic images of Umbria is a valley with the thousands of colours of blooming flowers: the Castelluccio Plains of Norcia, in the Mt. Sibillini National Park.
