Usually overshadowed by the neighbouring region of Tuscany, Umbria has lately started to attract the attention it deserves! Italy’s “green heart” is famous for its several hill-towns that are a few miles from each other and easily explorable. This landlocked region has been relatively away from foreign influences and has been able to retain many of Italy's oldest traditions. Umbrian cuisine is homely and traditional, where wood-fired ovens are frequently used and local products like olive oil, wine, black truffles and fine cured meats are highly praised. The region is called "Umbria mistica" (mystical Umbria), as hundreds of saints were born on these lands, including St. Valentine as well as St. Francis and St. Benedict, the two fathers of Western monasticism.
