The Agriturismo Colleciglio is situated perfectly for trips in the nature but also just right to visit our beautiful Umbria, as it is located close to the most popular tourist cities of the area: Assisi, Todi, Montefalco, Bevagna, Spello, Orvieto, Spoleto and so on…

MONTEFALCO AND BEVAGNA

Taking the road to Montefalco, a town that is due to its enchanting position often called the “balustrade of Umbria” (centre of the valleys of the Clitunno, the Topino and the Tiber), you can continue to Bevagna with its beautiful square, medieval walls and famous ancient mosaics. If you carry on towards Foligno and Perugia (SS75), it is worth it to stop at Spello and to visit the church S. Maria Maggiore (the chapel Baglioni has frescoes by Pinturicchio and Perugino).

ASSISI AND SPELLO

Taking the A-road (SS75) to the exit for Assisi you arrive at the church S. Maria degli Angeli, under whose dome you find the ancient chapel of Porziuncola. Assisi is best to explore by a walk through the ancient medieval streets. Just to give some examples of the endless ancient sights, you could visit the Basilica of S. Francesco and admire the frescoes of Giotto and Cimabue, the Piazza del Comune with the ancient temple Minerva, or the Cathedral of St. Rufino, and a lot more.

TREVI E SPOLETO

Leaving the Agriturismo Colleciglio in the southern direction you will arrive at Trevi, a picturesque town that perches on a hill with religious buildings, richly decorated palaces, a monastic edifice of San Francesco (XIII century) and the church of San Martino (XIV century). The Renaissance Palazzo Lucarini shows contemporary art of Chia, Paladino and Pistoletto. Continuing the road you will pass by the springs of Clitunno, which inspired Virgil and Pliny, Byron and Carducci. Spoleto is nearby and always worth a visit. The City of the “Festival dei Due Mondi” also has beautiful monuments like the Fortress of Albornoz and the majestic Ponte delle Torri. From Spoleto a road leads directly to Norcia, homeland of St. Benedict (besides being famous for sausages and cheese) and Cascia homeland of St. Rita.

TODI E ORVIETO

Also worth a trip is Todi with its famous monuments around the Piazza del Popolo and the church of San Fortunato, where Jacopone is buried, a poet of the thirteenth century and author of several famous laudi (songs in praise of the Lord). If you want to continue, you will reach the astonishing Orvieto that appears like an imposing fortress situated on a cliff of tuff on a peak of a valley of fields and vineyards. Visiting its magnificent monuments such as the characteristic spring of St. Patrick in the form of steps, the Etruscan necropolis, the beautiful cathedral and the Palazzo del Populo you will never forget your trip to Orvieto.
