亲亲宝贝1234A beautiful town on the top of the mountain, the evening scenery is so beautiful! The cathedral is very exquisite, and the interior decoration is gorgeous, but it's a pity not to let you take pictures! There happened to be an event held in the church. I watched it for a while. The outside scenery, the blue sky in the evening, accompanied by the sunset, is as beautiful as a picture!
TodemmyWhen we visited this place is early June and the only colors appear in meadow is green grass and yellow flower. It wasn''t colorful as the picture shown in TA. Maybe July is better time to see the peak of blooming flowers with many colors. However, this plain is surrounded by mountains and hills and field of lentils. We only stop for brief since it doesn''t live up our expectation. If come at the right time, this place is very beautiful.
M40***45The whole town of Assisi is like a fairy tale. Walking in it, you can't help but admire its exquisite beauty. When we entered the church, there were devout people praying, and there were ethereal and distant hymns in our ears, which made people calm down.
小花猫大笨熊The Basilica di Santa Maria degli Angeli (Basilica di Santa Maria degli Angeli) was built from 1569 to 1679. It surrounds a small church built in the 9th century and is the most sacred place of the Franciscan Church. The young Saint Francis understood his call and determined to retreat to a life of poverty and found the Franciscans. On April 11, 1909, the church was elevated to the "temple" by Pope Pius X.
In the square in front of the church, people were rubbing petals and plant leaves to paint on the ground.
To enter the church, you have to go through a security check machine, and no backpacks, knives, lighters, etc. are allowed in. The Italian soldiers with guns at the security check are so handsome. I resisted the desire to take photos of 180 times.
The golden statue of the Virgin stands on top of the church, overlooking all beings. Today is Sunday. Many believers in the church are praying. They can only enter the church lightly. Photographs are allowed at the door. Most of the churches are forbidden to take photos.
There is a simple and beautiful retreat room in the middle of the church. Many believers meditate and pray in it. I also stood on the wall for a while and experienced the solemn atmosphere.
There is a paid toilet on the left hand side of the church.
135***48In the 13th century, the body of Carles, the founder of the Poor Sisters, was buried here. He followed Francis, the founder of Franciscans during his lifetime. The clothes made by Carles for Francis are displayed in the window.

Spello, nestled on the southern flank of Mount Subasio, between Assisi and Foligno, is part of the club of "The Most Beautiful Villages of Italy" due to its significant environmental, cultural and artistic heritage. The ancient town centre of Umbrian origin, "Hispellum" from the first century BC, was an important Roman town given the title " Splendidissima Colonia Julia". There is important and impressive evidence of the Roman period which coexists beautifully with today's medieval urban appearance. The itinerary for your visit starts in the lower part of the town. You will enter into the heart of the town through the monumental Consular gate (first century BC), given this name because it marked the entrance to the city from Via Flaminia; follow what was once the route of the old uphill road and let yourself be captivated by the coexistence of isolated Roman structures, to your right, and the medieval urbanization that you can admire on the left; continue until you get to the open space that houses the church of Santa Maria Maggiore.
Get lost in the narrow medieval streets adorned with colourful flower-filled balconies, which, on the day of Corpus Christi, are joined by precious carpets of flowers, for the famous Flower Festival of Spello; authentic works of sacred art made with flower petals. Visit the ancient Villa dei Mosaici museum, a Roman villa in the Sant'Anna area, where you can see 360 square metres of mosaic floors that have recently been restored and are dated between the third and early fourth century AC. If you still have some time left we recommend a walk in the gardens of Villa Fidelia park, or a little relaxation in the Spello Franciscan Spa, where you can enjoy the benefits of the sulphur waters that flow in the plain below.

Assisi is a popular destination for pilgrims. Yet you don’t have to be religious to appreciate the town’s beautiful scenery, spectacular architecture and rich culture. Assisi is also a foodie’s paradise with mouth-watering meat, cheese and fine wine at the heart of town life. Here are the best things to see and do while you’re visiting this Umbrian city.
Located in the heart of Assisi’s Piazza del Commune, the six columns of the ancient Roman temple, the Tempio di Minerva, are impossible to miss. Built during the reign of Augustus in the first century BC, the pagan temple was abandoned when Rome converted to Christianity. Later, it became the headquarters of the Commune of Assisi in 1215. Still standing after 2,000 years, the temple is now home to a church.

#holidayvacation TUCKED AWAY AMONG THE GREEN hills of Umbria, Rasiglia is a medieval village dating back to the 13th century. While the centuries-old stone homes and buildings appear as though they’re frozen in time, the town is constantly in motion; small streams rush through the village, looping around centuries-old homes and stone buildings.
The streams, fed by the Menotre tributary, weave through the village, forming torrents, basins, and small waterfalls. During the 16th century, they powered the town’s mill, wool and dyeing factory, and wash-houses. After the mill and factories shuttered, many abandoned Rasiglia for the closest city, and only a few residents live in the village today.
Some of the buildings that were abandoned or damaged have been restored, such as the old mill, while others have been converted into homes.
#mynovgetaway Thanks to the enchanting geographical position (on top of a 473 metres hill, among the valleys of Clitunno, Topino and Tevere), Montefalco has been defined "the Umbrian railing". A landmark for hilly landscapes, trekking, biking and outdoor life lovers.
Its name used to be Coccorone during the Middle Ages: according to the legend the toponym derived from its presumed founder, the senator Marco Curione; on the contrary, modern historians think it derived from the Ancient Greek "oros", mount.
Suddenly, between the end of 1249 and 1250, this charming place got the name of Montefalco, probably from one of the hawks (falco, in Italian) of the emperor Frederik Barbarossa, that stayed in Coccorone from the 9th to the 13th of February 1240.
Montefalco is famous for the astonishing frescoes of its churches: this lovely village is indeed one of the essential points of interest for a basic knowledge of the traditional Umbrian painting.
Montefalco is been inhabited from the very ancient times: probable rural 'pago' (one of the rural districts of the Ancient Rome), Montefalco got filled up with patrician Roman villas, of which it remained a vivid memory into the toponymsof: Assegnano, Camiano, Colverano, Rignano, Satriano, Vecciano.
This glorious past is testified by the numerous epigraph and sculptural remains that you will easily find into Museo Comunale, Chiostro di San Fortunato, and so on.
The Medieval buildings overlooking the central square definitely worth a visit, there is also an old part of the village, where time is lost and there are touchable signs of an ancient life: the "voices" of old trades, arts, works...here you will perceive the deep breath of the past mingling the present. Among the rosy ashlar walls, along the tiny alleys outstretched to look the great light over the valley and some vines of Sagrantino you will find the peace you were looking for in your ideal Italian vacation.
Todi is a town in the Umbria region of central Italy containing numerous historical and interesting buildings and monuments.
There is also a great deal of art to enjoy - Todi and the surrounding region have a wealth of art among the richest of Italy partly because this Diocese, in the 18th century, controlled more than 500 churches and still today has works of art of inestimable value.

Almost every year I have chance to visit the plain of Castelluccio di Norcia, a truly magical place located between the regions of Umbria and Marche, in the Sibillini Mountains, Italy. Every July the plain is the stage of an incredible flowering (the "fioritura") of lentils, poppers, daisies, bluebottles, and other flowers. The result is a huge show of colors that draws thousands of people from around Italy and more. Horses and sheep are also a common sight in the plain. In many ways, this place looks so unreal that
you wouldn't think it really exists. The area was hit by a major earthquake in 2016 and the village of Castelluccio has been mostly wiped off, but the fascination of this place remains intact and worth of preservation. #italy #umbria #italytravel #italybeauties #travel #amazingplacetobe #awesomepic
Embrace the season of flowers in Spello, the "Flower Town" in Central Italy!
The lower floors of the church are dimly lit, all covered with gorgeous wet murals, all from the famous handwriting (the paintings by Cimabue, Martini, etc.). However, there is not enough light inside, you can only enjoy it with limited lighting and candlelight. On the right side of the main hall is the crucifixion of Christ. On the left is the life of Saint Francis. One of them is the classic of the Virgin and Child painted by Lorenzo. The Virgin stared at St. Francis and his face showed a very loving look. It is said that this picture is more moving under the setting sun, so it is also called "The Madonna at dusk". There are also many wet murals on the altar, which should be drawn by the disciples of Giotto. The small clothing room on the right still retains the costumes of St. Francis. The most important of the lower church is the Franciscans in the cellar and the tombs of his four followers. There are also priests who listen to the repentance and blessings of the lost. This mantle was closed in the 15th century to avoid being shackled by mortals until it was reopened in 1818. Going to the bottom of the lower church, there is a small chapel on the wall with the "Life of St. Martin" by Simon Martin, which is worth watching.
From the lower steps of the lower church you can climb to the upper church, with a small atrium in the middle, selling books and souvenirs. Compared with the lower church, the upper church was more affected by the earthquake. The most famous church in the upper class is the wet fresco of the life of St. Francis, drawn by Giotto, which is called Giotto's work. However, according to modern testimony, at least three painters participated in these 28 masterpieces.
Familiar with Serie A is no stranger to Perugia, but in the province of Perugia, there is also a well-known flower town Spello. The town is on one side of the hill. The houses in the town are made of stone. Unlike the grayish stones of other towns, the stones are slightly yellow with a distinct medieval style.
For the name of the flower town, spello can be really unambiguous. In front of every household, they are carefully decorated with small flower pots. There is no shortage of flowers all year round. Every year, the town also has the tradition of selecting the best flower arrangement, which reminds me of the courtyard festival in Cordoba, Spain. In the arrangement of flowers, the Italians can not lose the Spaniards of the Spanish, and directly put the flowers on the door, on the wall, and even on the trails.
If you don't have time to go to Sicily for a rug of flowers, it's really recommended to go to Spello for a day, the town is quiet and hospitable, because it is not a traditional place to travel, compared to the adjacent holy city of Assisi, Basically invisible to the people. The pace of life here is slow, and we may not want to leave if we come to live in the metropolis.
