There is no one better to uncover the secrets of Umbria, Italy’s ‘Green Heart’, than Italian experts Dana Facaros and Michael Pauls. Having lived there for three years, they know just where to seek out the delights of this bewitching region, to the east of its better-known neighbour, Tuscany. Discover magnificent Assisi, the home of St Francis; take in Gubbio, a medieval gem to rival Siena; enjoy the extraordinary Renaissance treasures of Spoleto. After all that culture, they lead you to the dinner table to enjoy Umbrian specialities, from pasta with truffles to ‘drunken’ chicken, made using the famous white wines of Orvieto. All restaurants are personally researched, so you can be sure you will enjoy some of the best tastes the culinary world can offer, as the sun beats down on some secluded terrace. The guide is also packed full of information about festivals, markets and vineyards to give you a real taste of local life, alongside some of Italy’s most remarkable sights.
