Among the most famous villages in Umbria there are certainly Assisi and Spello.
In particular, Assisi, a UNESCO heritage site, one of the most visited cities in Umbria, undoubtedly constitutes a splendid medieval backdrop to what is one of the most important Italian basilicas, the one dedicated to St. Francis.
The basilica has always been the destination of countless pilgrimages due to the importance that the Saint holds in Italian and Catholic culture as well as being a true architectural spectacle given that it presents itself to the eyes of the majestic and elegant visitor, preserving very valuable frescoes. Do not miss a ride in its characteristic medieval historic center.
Also not to be missed is Spello, “Hispellum – the most splendid Colonia Julia”, in whose medieval village, rich in characteristic alleys and ancient churches, art lovers can delight by observing the valuable frescoes by Pinturicchio that adorn the Baglioni Chapel, also known as a beautiful chapel.
Also noteworthy is the floral display in Spello, which fills the town with flowers, scents and colors.
