A truly special old town hamlet nestled among the greenest Marchegian hills, Recanati is mainly famous for being the birthplace and source on inspiration for the great poet Giacomo Leopardi. It is still possible to visit him home and relive verse after verse some Italy’s greatest literary achievements.
Set on the foothills of mount Ingino, Gubbio is amongst the oldest cities in Umbria yet wonderfully preserved through time and filled with monuments and historical buildings. Gubbio certainly deserved a special mention for organising the famous ‘Corsa dei Ceri’ e a tradition dating back to Medieval times when the families and casts were competing for power over the town.
Assisi extents on the foothills of mount Subasio in heart of the Umbria region. Although the town dates back to Roman times the architectonic styles and expressions of the building are far more influenced by the medieval times. Many are the churches and cathedrals that make this town a pivotal point in the Christian religion but few can claim to be really unique like San Francesco, Santa Chiara and Sam Pietro.
