UMBRIA AND TUSCANY – ITALY TRAVEL INSPIRATION

Travelling central Italy to the regions of Umbria and Tuscany is a trip of nature, fantastic food, great wine, art and love.

Umbria

Our travel starts from Umbria, also known as the green heart of Italy.

From Rome, It takes about an hour to drive to Narni (a provincial town of the Italian region of Umbria), where nearby you will find the impressive Marmore falls.

Cascata delle Marmore (Marmore Falls)

The Cascata delle Marmore (Marmore Falls) is a man-made waterfall created by the ancient Romans.

In 271 BC, the Velino river was greatly enlarged and it had created a vast zone of swampy and unhealthy water.

To remove that threat to the city, the Roman consul ordered the construction of a canal to divert the stagnant waters into the natural cliff at Marmore.

From there, he had them precipitate, in a total fall of 165 meters, into the river of the Nera river which runs along below.

Today, most of the time, the water in the canals above the falls is diverted into a hydroelectric power plant, so the flow in the falls themselves is heavily reduced.Umbria

 

The falls are turned on according to a set schedule achieving a spectacular effect at full flow.

To see the full flow make sure to check the opening times before your visit 🙂

SPELLO

Umbria, spelloUmbria, spello

Spello is an ancient town of Italy, in the province of Perugia.
Built of stones what gives it its beautiful medieval aspect Spello is enclosed in a circuit of medieval walls on Roman foundations.

In Spello, every year, take place a big flowers exhibition called Spello’s Infiorate on the ninth Sunday after Easter.
On that night, almost a thousand people work to create carpets and pictures made of flowers along the narrow town’s streets.

All around the year, the town is beautiful and worth a visit.

TUSCANY – LOVE, LOVE, LOVE

Tuscany is like a beautiful art piece.

It is just gorgeous! Vineyards all around, mountains and the typical Tuscan Cypress trees make you feel like walking in heaven.

Chianti is famous all around the world for excellent red wine.

Chianti is a postcard-perfect part of Tuscany.

Enjoy the sunset in Tuscany with local red wine is a real pleasure.

In Chianti, you’ll find historic olive groves, honey-coloured stone farmhouses, dense forests, Renaissance villas and impressive stone castles built in the Middle Ages.

Firenze or Florence is a very important city for Italian art.

If you find yourself in Florence, don’t skip a visit to the Uffizi Gallery, where the most famous art pieces in the world are collected.

The Uffizi Gallery is a leading art museum located near Piazza della Signoria in the Historic Centre of Florence in the region of Tuscany, Italy.

In conclusion, I believe Italy represents simplicity and sophistication at the same time.

The views, nature, food, natural ingredients, the effortless way to live happy and healthy.
