Umbria - Final Review

Jump to last reply

I'll be leaving with my wife for Umbria in a little over a week.

I'm still trying to nail down the Umbria day trips.

We'll be base in Perugia for about 5-6 days and will have to allow time there.

We will not have a car.

Since my wife suffers from motion sickness (she has gotten better over the past several years due to wristbands, pills and closing her eyes) so we try to take trains as much as possible with a few buses sprinkled in.

Originally, Assisi was left of the list as I expect it's a very religious town and over-run with people. Now I'm having second thoughts.

My list currently consists of (probably not all but will have to choose):
Spoleto (by train and city bus from the station)
Spello (by train - how would we get from the station?)
Gubbio (by bus and I'm concerned about this bus ride)
Todi (either private train and then city bus or bus all the way)
Trevi (train but then what?)
Assisi (still not sure about merits of this town. Train then shuttle bus)

Some of the above are on the same train line and close together. Maybe a few can be combined on the same day? Or are some almost identical copies of one another and can be omitted?

Comments on the above and how to get to the town would be greatly appreciated.

As I mentioned at the start we leave in just over a week.

Thanks
