    Today we visit some of Umbria’s most beguiling hilltop towns and villages on our full-day included excursion.

    The honey-hued buildings of pretty Spello seemingly cling to the side of Monte Subasio, whilst Montefalco is known as the 'balcony of Umbria' for its elevated position and spectacular vistas.

    We visit Spoleto which has a compact centre filled with a wealth of history; the Ponte delle Torri bridge and hilltop fortress add to the town’s attractive appearance.

    The day concludes with a visit to a wine producer with a tasting of local wines.

    Today's included excursion takes us to the neighbouring region of Tuscany with a visit to the delightful towns of Siena and San Gimignano.

    A maze of red-brick buildings, Siena is a wonderfully preserved medieval treasure trove. At its heart lies Il Campo, renowned as Italy’s most beautiful piazza, which bustles with life and is the scene of the frenetic Palio horse race twice each year.

    Next we travel to San Gimignano, which is instantly recognisable by its thirteen stone towers, from which the town takes its nickname of ‘Medieval Manhattan’.

    Enjoy beautiful views over the Tuscan countryside from the town’s lovely hilltop position.
