Mountains and medieval villages of Umbria

Umbria is called the green heart of Italy . It is one of the smallest regond of Italy, but it’s territory is rich of mountains and amazing landscapes. Umbria is famous for Monti Sibillini national park and the highest mountain Vettore (2476 m). The Wolf, the Golden Eagle, the Peregrine, and a number of endemic species are the most evident elements of a biological richness which, along with the charm of the abbeys and the medieval historical town centers lying in a crown at the foot of the mountains, have shaped an old and fascinating world where time has stopped to honor a reality of extraordinary beauty.

Norcia is a typical medieval town, surrounded by defensive walls that are still largely intact. The town is popular among the tourists because of their local products – local salami, sheep’s cheeses, lentils and truffles.
