Tinkering with Umbria

Jump to last reply

Just started tinkering with Umbria for some time in June 2013.

As we did for our recent Tuscany and Provence trips, I expect we won't rent a car and depend on good planning using trains and buses.

My first thoughts would be to spend a few days in Rome (been there twice before - last time about 10 years ago) and do some daytrips (Orvieto, Spoleto) from Rome.

Then possibly move to Perugia as a base for the rest of Umbria.

Assisi, Spello, Gubbio, Cortona (I know it's. . .), Todi and more to be determined.

The hope is that Perugia will not only be convenient for public transportation but also keep us occupied when not on daytrips or after returning from a daytrip.

When we based in Florence we planned days without a daytrip. However, when we based in Avignon we didn't plan on any complete days there. Worked out well.

What I'm really looking for is advice on a base.

Depending on how plane booking works out (if we return from milan) we might include a daytrip to Verona.

I keep thinking of Milan as a drab city. Is it that or worthy of a day or so?
