Umbria

Umbria is located in the heart of central Italy, and it is its second smallest region.
The River Tevere crosses Umbria flowing toward Rome, and it is bordered by Toscana, Marche, Lazio and Abruzzo.
There are two provinces: Perugia, which is also the region capital and Terni.

Perugia, the region capital, is an etruscan city rich of art and history, easy to visit. It’s the land of good chocolate, the festival Eurochocolate, and Umbria Jazz.

Terni is the city of Saint Valentine, so lovers celebrate the 14th of february here. Less than 10 km away the Marmore Falls.
