A calendar rich of events ready to invade squares and alleys of the beautiful historical centres of the Region are going to accompany your stay: discover the magic of the Italian Green Heart in Spring!
Corsa dei Ceri | Mid-May
Umbria’s most spectacular medieval pageant involves a race up the mountain behind Gubbio between three teams carrying immense wooden ceri, or “candles”.
Holy Week | April/May
Processions and special services take place across Umbria over Easter, but are particularly extravagant and memorable in Assisi. The town also holds major celebrations for Calendimaggio, usually on the first Thursday to Saturday after May 1, a medieval spring festival with Franciscan associations.
Flower Festival of Corpus Domini in Spello
Spello is transformed into a beautiful field of flowers where each petal is part of an incredible project. The streets of the village are decorated with thousands of petals, blooms, and vegetables of all kinds. Every citizen is contributing to the realization of the best-flowered framework, which is also a tribute to God.
With its hills and untouched parks, the richness of waters and several open-air activities to choose from, Umbria is the ideal destination for your spring holidays: as a couple, family or with friends!
Any examples? The Trasimeno Lake with its breath-taking landscapes, stone villages, typical flavours and water sports for all kinds of fun, the Marmore Waterfall with its itineraries, the countless natural water sources present in all the territory, the Piediluco Lake ideal for sailing, canoeing and water ski, besides bike, mountain bike and trekking. There are several itineraries at your disposal to plunge yourself into the nature.
Urban trekking is a great opportunity to explore hidden corners and little known historical places.
An example of this is the “Umbria underground” route, where many towns, including Perugia and Todi, can be visited through underground passages and tunnels, enriching our historical and archaeological knowledge in a fascinating way.
Umbria encompasses large part of the Monti Sibillini national park as well as seven regional parks: the park of Colfiorito, of Monte Cucco, Monte Subasio, the Tiber river park, the park of Monte Peglia and Selva di Meana, the park of Lago Trasimeno and the Nera river park.
Each one has a different story to tell through its environmental and naturalistic features, the fascinating flora, fauna, streams and rivers, lakes and geological stratifications, the distinguishing aspects that are the essence of Umbrian parks, all of which are also home to historical and cultural remains linked to the great roads of the past.
Umbrian parks are home to unusual flora and fauna of great interest from a naturalistic point of view.
Come and enjoy the many parks with your friends and family, the nature that awaits you here is truly unique!
