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!

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.

Here is a list of the most important towns in Umbria, from a tourist/artistic/architectural point of view:

1. Perugia
2. Assisi
3. Spoleto
4. Orvieto
5. Gubbio
6. Spello
7. Montefalco
8. Bevagna
9. Norcia
10. Narni
11. Amelia
12. Todi

The first five towns are the most important of the dozen.

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.
If want a different experience, I can recommend the castle we stayed just outside of Assisi:
Castel San Gregorio
They don't have a website, but check out:

for a description.
An added plus: We had two wonderful dinners there.
