Spending 5 days in Umbria for your holidays will let you regenerate, in the midst of the peace and natural beauty that Italy’s green region has to offer. There are many possibilities: from walks in the mountains to visiting the many hamlets throughout the area, from sports to cultural activities, to the serenity of the lake, for anyone who wants to get some sun and bathe in clean water. This is what’s out there, suitable for everyone, to spend 5 days in Umbria starting from Todi.
A day at the lake
Anyone who loves spending a day at the lake can go to Piediluco: the second largest lake after Trasimeno, it has a perimeter of about 13 kilometres. It is ideal for a day with the family, the lake also has beaches with amenities such as cafés and restaurants. It is possible to rent boats, canoes and pedalboats and go around the lake, for adults and children alike. Ending the day with a visit to the delightful town of Piediluco at sunset is the perfect conclusion to a summer’s day spent in nature, doing sports and relaxing.
Visiting the most beautiful villages of Italy
Umbria is a haven of villages that have, over time, classified as Borghi più Belli d’Italia, the Most beautiful Villages of Italy. Of these we would like to suggest Trevi, the city of Oil, where the historical centre is one of the most beautiful and best preserved of Umbria. Another cultural heritage of great value is the City of Water: Nocera Umbra. A hilltop village, contained in impressive medieval walls, where you dive deep into the past. Another must-see village, in this 5-day tour of Umbria, is Norcia: a little piece of food heaven in the shape of a heart, very enchanting especially at sunset.
For people who love hiking, lastly, we would like to suggest the Furioso Trail. A loop trail of 17 kilometres between Todi and Monte Castello di Vibio, which starts and ends in Pian di San Martino. A trail where nature and medieval history merge, to give enthusiasts an unforgettable experience. A trail for hiking or biking.
