Which city to visit for 2 nights in Umbria
My husband and I will be in Italy and would like to spend 2 nights in Umbria May 3-5. Which one do you recommend? We would like to relax, soak up the atmosphere (but get a cheap hotel. Which town would be best!<BR><BR>Thank you!

Assuming that you are with car, I recommend Bevagna for its central location. We have visited there a half dozen times in the past few years. I can elaborate if you wish to email me.

We've been to Assisi three times and love it there. I've only traveled through some of the other notable towns so I can't really speak for them. I think you would find it very uplifting and the food served in establishments there is wonderful. M.

We Assisi to be both a great town to spend a day in and a good location to stay overnight in.<BR>If want a different experience, I can recommend the castle we stayed just outside of Assisi:<BR>Castel San Gregorio<BR>They don't have a website, but check out:<BR> <BR>for a description.<BR>An added plus: We had two wonderful dinners there.
