Get active in Umbria: options include climbing, canyoning, rafting, tubing, hydrospeeding, paragliding, treetop adventure parks, hiking or donkey-hiking, archery and mountain-biking in a natural bike park next to the Marmore Falls, the world's tallest man-made waterfalls, created by the Romans and worth seeing in their own right. You can also go caving in waterfall caves.
Take your family to the stunning town of Orvieto, perched on top of a sheer cliff in southern Umbria. Tour the cathedral and the alternative underground city, and sample the local Orvieto Classico.

Visit breathtaking Assisi and the Basilica of San Francesco, and explore the Umbrian capital Perugia with its walled old town, medieval palace housing a museum of regional art, Gothic cathedral and chocolate museum.
Discover Todi, one of the prettiest hilltop towns in Umbria, with its lovely central square and impressive cathedral and medieval public buildings. It's home to a hot-air balloon festival each July.
