  • Day 2 Perugia
  • ​After breakfast our included tour takes you to Perugia, Umbria's capital. In the company of a Local Guide, wander the maze of cobbled streets in its beautiful historic centre to discover piazzas framed by fine mansions and a host of Etruscan and Roman monuments. You'll also visit the Perugina Chocolate Museum, located inside the factory that produces the famous chocolate and hazelnut Baci 'kisses'. Here you'll enjoy a tour and a tasting.​
  • Day 3 Assisi
  • ​A Local Guide will introduce you to the highlights of Assisi, best known as the birthplace of St Francis of Assisi, patron saint of Italy. This medieval hill town is filled with churches, monasteries and shrines and you'll visit the grandest, the 13th century cathedral, built to honour the humble saint who lies in the crypt. Other highlights include the Rocca Maggiore castle.​​
  • Day 4 Foligno & Spello
  • Why not join our full-day optional excursion, which begins with a guided tour of Foligno, where highlights include the 14th century Trinci Palace and a Romanesque cathedral. You'll also view the unique 'Calamita Cosmica', a huge sculpture of a skeleton with a long, pointy nose. This work of art was toured around Europe for many years and is now housed in a former church here. 

    In the afternoon your tour continues to medieval Spello, where you can enjoy some time at leisure. The town is entered via three well-preserved Roman stone arches, and as you stroll around its cobblestone streets you can admire stone houses and peer into mysterious alleyways.​

  • Day 5 Lake Trasimeno
  • ​Today we include a cruise on Lake Trasimeno. Starting from Castiglione del Lago, located on a limestone promontory above the ruins of several Etruscan tombs, you'll cruise to Isola Maggiore. Step ashore to discover a charming fishing village, with houses dating back to the 15th century, and a lace museum.​ Later you'll visit an organic farm, which is supported by the Travelsphere Cares project. The farm works closely with the local community, in particular children, teaching them about the importance of healthy eating. Here you'll learn about organic farming methods and take a tour of the farm.  
  • Day 6 Narni & Ferentillo
  • Today is free for you to spend at leisure. Otherwise you can join our optional tour. We will start exploring one of the most fascinating cities of Umbria, Narni, and its unique underground area, including a convent, church and a Roman complex. The town is also famous for its art, architecture and cuisine, and you'll enjoy a tasting of local delicacies here. Your tour continues to the village of Ferentillo, where you'll visit the Church of Santo Stefano. Its crypt has a spooky surprise – a display of mummified bodies, which, in some cases, have hair, teeth and clothes.
  • Day 7 Gubbio & Grotte di Frasassi
  • ​We've left today free for you to explore at your own pace. Alternatively, join our optional excursion to Gubbio, a Local Guide will introduce you to highlights including Gothic and Renaissance monuments. You'll also find a Roman amphitheatre just outside the town. Next stop is the magical Grotte di Frasassi caves complex​.
