Gastronomy: Umbria is a land of food and wine traditions. Umbrian olive oil is delicious: very tasting and green coloured, one drop will take you into an imaginary walk through the olives, up to the hills; cured meat and cheese will drive your to Norcia and it’s highland ; a wine tour would delight your papillae as much as your sight and senses with the green, tidy rows and the peaceful atmosphere; a truffle hunt would not be a great idea? You could eat the truffle you discovered !
