Delicious Umbrian Recipe from our dear friends at Locanda del Teatro in Montefalco
One of the best reasons to visit Umbria is that it’s a bit out of the way of the usual path of the major cities. Here is how to get there.
Umbria possesses a wealth of cultural heritage as well as a natural beauty giving the region the nickname, “The Green Heart of Italy.” It is called this partly due to its physical location landlocked in the center of the boot, and partly due to its beautiful, rolling green hills fed by the lakes and rivers that sustain its verdure. From underground Roman cisterns to modern art museums and jazz, to the outdoors and everything in between, the culture in Umbria has something to offer literally anyone.
Being the only landlocked region of Italy gives Umbria a unique foodshed compared to the other regions of Italy with their often ample coastlines. Umbria is best known for its more land-based products, many of which are even D.O.P. certified.
