Spring is the ideal season to plan a holiday in Umbria.
This region of Central Italy is also known as “the green heart of Italy”. This is why Umbria is even more charming in spring, when nature blooms.
Spring is the mildest season in Italy – and in Umbria in particular. From March to June the temperature becomes more pleasant and the days get longer. It is the ideal climate to visit the art cities and to attend the many events planned.
The green Umbria will restore you thanks to its postcard landscapes. Hills, woods and vineyards will be the setting of your relaxing holiday. Go for long walks and excursions by bike. There are so many paths to be discovered. The cities and the tourist places are still not crowded at all during spring. So it is easier to find an accomodation and to save on costs especially.
Moreover, in spring there are several celebrations, fairs, festivals and local events. It is a great opportunity to get immersed in the atmosphere and traditions of Umbria. Most of the events are dedicated to the typical products, such as “the Black Diamond Festival”, in Scheggino. It is ideal for black truffle lovers.
The spring in Umbria is also the perfect opportunity to enjoy all the other specialities: cold cuts, wild asparagus, mushrooms, wines. Also, you can’t miss the traditional Easter desserts, such as Colomba and chocolate eggs.
