Umbria – gem of the “Bel Paese”

Day 1: Classic car tour through Chianti

We will wait for you at Florence Airport and accompany you to the hotel “Il Borgo di Vescine”. After we review the Road Book and we introduce you to the Alfa Romeo Spider fleet, you will start your first exit into the Chianti area. Back at the hotel you have time to relax by the pool or taste the house wines on the terrace before we accompany you to dinner together with delicious authentic Tuscan cuisine in a hamlet high in the Chianti hills

Day 2: Montepulciano and Orvieto

After breakfast you will check out of the hotel, and we will take care of your luggage to our next hotel. Today’s stage takes you deep into southern Tuscany, on picturesque country roads through the region of ”Crete Senesi“. In the late morning, an immersive and varied tour through the Renaissance town of Montepulciano, known for the red wine of the same name, awaits you. After the lunch break we are well on the way into Umbria: east of the Val di Chiana, the route leads through slightly hilly areas via Monteleone di Orvieto to Rocca Ripesena, where you will check in at the “Alta Rocca Wine Resort” with an enviable panoramic view in the middle of the vineyards and olive groves. We end this day with an evening tour of Orvieto.

Day 3: Perugia, Todi and der Lake di Corbara

This morning you will cross the green heart of Italy from south to north. In the flat Appenin foothills, we have chosen routes with little traffic for you, similar to the road book for the Mille Miglia: you will experience winding roads with shorter mountain stages, around every corner a fantastic view of the “Parco Fluviale Tevere“. At noon you will reach Perugia, the capital of Umbria. Take the opportunity to get to know the old university town on our joint city tour. Everywhere there are well-preserved testimonies from Etruscan and Roman antiquity, the Middle Ages, when the city belonged to the Papal States, and the blossoming Renaissance – the famous painter Raphael learned his craft in Perugia. You will get today to design your lunch break individually, so that there is also time for a shopping spree or more sight seeing throughout. The return trip follows the course of the Tiber and allows a coffee stop in Todi with its impressive Gothic cathedral. In the evening we enjoy a wine tasting in the middle of the vineyards before we go to dinner at the “Alta Rocca Wine Resort“.

Day 4: Radicofani and the d'Orcia Valley

After check-out, in your Alfa Romeos, we will briefly cross the Lazio region north of Lake Bolsena before following the old Roman road Via Cassia to the north. Via Radicofani and San Quirico d’Orcia in the Val d’Orcia, of the same name, you will reach Asciano and further on to the Crete Senesi. The last kilometers behind the wheel of your Alfa Romeo classic cars also offer views like in a picture book in Tuscany. In the early afternoon you will arrive at the “Borgo di Vescine” hotel, from where we will take you to Florence Airport, unless you extended your stay on site.

Umbria is in the middle of Italy and is an area full of rolling hills, mountains and valleys, rivers and lakes. The largest and most famous is Lake Trasimeno. Long before Hannibal's legendary victory, Etruscans settled near what is now Castiglione del Lago. Nature, art and culture are always just a stone's throw away from each other in Umbria. It also offers the almost 180 m high Marmore Falls by Terni a paradise for canoeists and kayakers, while next door are the ruins of Carsulae, an old Roman city, and the "petrified" forest of Danurobba.

There is the Palazzo Consoli in Gubbio, one of the most beautiful medieval towns and at the same time the oldest city in Umbria. Orvieto with his cathedral, a Gothic masterpiece, and the fountain of San Patrizio, a technical masterpiece, in which there are two spiral staircases with 248 steps that, without touching each other, reach the water at a depth of 62 m. Spoleto with his „Festival dei Due Mondi“, one of the most outstanding cultural events in Italy. One encounters spirituality and art in Assisi, the city of St. Francis, who is also buried here. Perugia, the capital of the region, has two universities and offers numerous museums in addition to the medieval city center.

Numerous Roman roads and pilgrimage routes criss-cross the landscape in the heart of Italy, the Via Cassia, Via Flaminia, Via Amerina, the Franconian Way. Originated on these streets pilgrimage sites and castles. The craft flourished in the small towns with pottery, glassblowing and carpentry workshops. The fertile soils on which for centuries olives and wine cultivated, ensure a varied cuisine similar to that of Tuscany. Norcia is known for the black truffle, salami and ham, matured sheep cheese and fresh goat cheese. The white truffle is found in the Tiber Valley. Umbrian cuisine is best enjoyed with a glass of Montefalco Rosso, Montefalco Sagrantino or Torgiano Rosso, with a dessert of "Panpepato" being enough, a kind of gingerbread.

1 review for Umbrien - das grüne Herz Italiens

  1. martin d.

    Auch wenn das “grüne Herz Italiens“ jahreszeitlich bedingt nicht ganz so grün war wie auf eurer Webseite, war es doch wieder eine phantastische Reise mit euch, mit wunderschönen kurvigen Landstraßen und last but not least tollen Autos. In vier kurzen Worten “4 Tage Gänsehaut pur”.

    Unsere Bedenken, ob es beim zweiten Mal nicht mehr so schön sein würde wie beim ersten Mal (Mille Miglia 2017) habt nicht nur ihr mit eurer sympathischen Art und großartigen Organisation sondern auch das interessante Programm schnell zerstreut. Wir sind jetzt schon sicher, nächstes Jahr die Piemont-Tour mitzufahren, nicht zuletzt weil sie an unserem 15. Hochzeitstag beginnt. Und weil Ludwig ja immer die netten Gäste abbekommt, freuen wir uns schon auf ein Wiedersehen.

    Liebe Grüße,

    Martin und Alexandra D.
