“Perhaps I will do the reader a favor by telling him how he will have to spend a week in Perugia. His first care will be not to be in a hurry, to walk everywhere very slowly and aimlessly and to observe everything his eyes will encounter. “
Henry James, writer
Etruscan walls and a delightful medieval historical center, this is Perugia, city of gluttons and artists, capital of the beautiful region of Umbria.
Perugia is also a place of culture par excellence, as it is home to two universities: the University of Studies, founded in 1308, and the University for Foreigners, the largest in Italy.
Montepulciano, famous for the wine to which it gives its name, stands on a hill 600 meters above sea level: from this height it is easy to get lost with the look among the green Tuscan hills, the olive groves and vineyards and the cypress trees that mark pleasantly all the landscape.
From the Tower of the Renaissance Palace of Montepulciano, the look reaches the Sibillini Mountains and Cimone and when the air is particularly clear even the Gran Sasso d’Italia in Abruzzo.
Val di Chiana
Val di Chiana is a part of Tuscany less known but very interesting from the point of view of tourism. It is incredibly authentic and beautiful.
There are many cities to visit: Cortona, Monte San Savino, Lucignano in the province of Arezzo while Trequanda, Montepulciano, Monticchiello and Pienza in the province of Siena.
The Val d’Orcia, a combination of art and landscape, geographical space and ecosystem, is the expression of wonderful natural features but it is also the result and the testimony of the people who lived there.
According to UNESCO this valley is an exceptional example of how the natural landscape has been redesigned in the Renaissance and reflects the ideals of “good governance” (XIV and XV century) typical of the Italian city-state, whose splendid places were celebrated by the painters of the Sienese School, which flourished between the 13th and 15th century.
The images of the Val d’Orcia and in particular the reproductions of its landscapes, in which people are depicted live in harmony with nature, have thus become icons of the Renaissance era.
