An enjoyable sojourn at Locanda Del Gallo, located in the sorroundings of Gubbio in Umbria, or at Villa Nuti, located in Colmodino, will give you the opportunity to visit some of the most pleasant Umbrian locations.
Lying on the slopes of Monte Ingino, Gubbio, in the district of Perugia, wonderfully preserved over the centuries, is quite rich of monuments that exhibit its glorious past.
The Eugubine Tables and the Roman Theatre – located right outside the walls, are two testimonies of its ancient origins. The Basilica of Sant’Ubaldo overlooks Gubbio from on high, preserving the Patron’s untouched remains. Gubbio shields architectonical masterpieces that recall and symbolise the power of this ancient medieval hamlet.
The Consul’s Palace (XIV Century) is a great example of that, as well as the Pretorian Palace and Pensile Square. More jewels of Gubbio are the Beni Palaces, the Ducal Palace, the Cathedral from the XII Century, the Church of Sant’Agostino from the XIII Century, the Church of San Francesco and the one of San Giovanni, from the XII Century.
Assisi, in the district of Perugia and stretched towards the slopes of Monte Subasio, even if it has Roman origins, both its urban plan and the architectonic style of its buildings highlight a massive medieval development.
Assisi is worldwide renowned for its huge artistic heritage, which also counts some worship places of the greatest importance, like the Basilica of San Francesco, the Church of San Pietro and the Basilica of Santa Chiara. Then noteworthy, are the Duomo dedicated to the Patron San Rufino, the fourteenth-century Priors’ Palace and the People Captain’s Palace (from the ‘200s????), while the Temple of Minerva is dated back to Augustan Age.
Nearby it is also possible to visit the Hermitage of the Dungeons, the Convent of San Damiano, the great Basilica of Santa Maria of the Angels and the Chapel of the Porziuncola, each bound to San Francesco’s life.
Castello di Rosciano
The Castle of Rosciano was built on the ruins of a site that was Etruscan at first and later Roman. It was destroyed in 548 by Totila, and during the Middle Age it achieved the fame of being unassailable. The castle stands on the hills between Bettona and Torgiano, in the silence and peace of the holm oak woods. The Castle of Rosciano, built on a site that was Etruscan at first and later Roman, was considered to be absolutely safe in the Middle Ages. The first documented knowledge of the site is dated back to 1038.
