Eleven days in Umbria. June 2011 - Big pieces of the puzzle are in place.

Jump to last reply

Staying in Spello during Infiorata ((Y))
Plane flights ((Y))
Hotel for one night in Ovieto ((Y))
Apartment in Spello for ten nights ((Y))
Rental car ((Y))
GPS ((Y))
Rosetta Stone Italian lessons ((Y))

Now the fun begins...the details.

I have a ton of questions about logistics, timing and other things. I won't crame it all into this one message, but there are some things I'd like to get some feedback on right away.

After arriving in Rome around 9 am we will be driving to Orvieto for the night. It is my hope that we can get in a nice lunch, a good walk around, a look at the Duomo and an underground tour that day (we like our first day to be busy), followed by a satisfying dinner. We will be departing the next day for our apartment in Spello. I don't imagine we will be in a rush to leave and if there is something we want to do in Orvieto that next day, we will do it.

Would it be a logical choice to visit Todi enroute to Spello? We could have lunch there and explore. Or could Todi be left for a later excursion that might include other points of interest (whatever those might be)?

How about leaving a rental car with luggage in it in Todi for a few hours? Risky? Thoughts?

Thanks to research done here and other places our hit list for this trip include trips to Gubbio, the immediate area around Spello, Bevagna, Montelfalco and Trevi, Assisi, Perugia, Piano Grande and Norcia, and a trip to San Pietro en Valle with a possible visit to Cascata del Marmore and Carsulae (more on that in another post).

Another, rather selfish given is a rather long day trip to Faenza to see the ceramics museum and a visit some of the artists workshops there. I posted about this on another forum and got positive feedback. Early departure, late arrival. More on this later too, but I am thinking that a dinner on the way back in Montone or Umbertide would be fun. Doable?

That's if for now. I have been perusing this site for months now and am finally starting to get stoked for the trip to happen and ready for some details to fill in the blanks.

Thank you!
