    Absolutely marvelous!
    We live in Umbria, so we are very familiar with local Italian medieval towns. We also love Sagrantino wine and have been in a bunch of wineries for tours and tastings in Montefalco, but somehow we never visited Montefalco’s historical center. We decided to make a day trip out of it and it was absolutely fantastic! We strolled the town (which is very small), went to the point of view, visited Complesso Museale di San Francesco with stunning frescoes (please don’t miss this hidden gem), sat down for a lovely aperitif on the main square and then had a fabulous dinner at Locanda del Teatro! Such a fantastic day! There are plenty of wine stores (we compared prices for some wines that we knew and they were a bit higher than the same wines at the local supermarket or directly from the winery, so we didn’t buy anything), gift shops (with magnets, ceramics from Deruta and other things) and lovely cafés. Charming town that I highly suggest to visit.

  • Ringhiera dell'Umbria
    La sua posizione panoramica sopra un colle, a dominio delle valle circostanti, le hanno fatto meritare l'appellativo "Ringhiera dell'Umbria". Pur essendo molto piccolo le testimonianze storiche ed artistiche non mancano, il suo grazioso centro storico è impreziosito da chiese, palazzi gentilizi, porte antiche e non ultimo il Complesso museale. Entrando da porta S. Agostino si percorre in salita il corso principale, costellato da negozi di artigianato tipico, per arrivare alla piazza centrale. Da qui una serie di viuzze permettono di scoprire gli angoli più pittoreschi del borgo.

    Splendido borgo!!
    Splendido borgo, pulito,ricco di negozi ,bar ,enoteche, ristoranti per tutte le tasche, famoso sprattutto per il Sagrantino e per il Complesso museale di San Francesco, il motivo principale per il quale siamo venuti qui. In una giornata ce lo siamo girato tutto, i commercianti di Montefalco devo dire che ci sanno fare...Incredibile ma vero abbiamo trovato un parcheggio GRATUITO..Tra l'altro un parcheggio enorme...Non ci volevamo credere, in tanti anni che giriamo l'Italia è la prima volta...

Linger through the labyrinth of ancient streets… take time for a coffee, a gelato, or a leisurely lunch. Oh, and the wine… Keep pouring! Truly a treasure that must be photographed!

Another Italian hill town which appeared to decorate many of its shop entrances with pink bikes covered in flowers -quite pretty. We visited about 10.00am got a great park just outside the wall, most shops were just starting to open and thus it was quiet and peaceful as we walked the streets. Some very pretty street scapes, great views of the Italian countryside. Lots of opportunities to taste the local produce. Very enjoyable.

We went here at lunchtime and dined outdoors (pizza of course) by the ancient cobbled streets of Centro Storico. We had to park below the hill and walk in. The square offers stupendous views We were lucky to have a clear day. All the hilltop towns are remarkable and this one is special. We enjoyed the local Montefalco red wine with lunch, later bought a bottle to take home. We stayed a week in nearby Macchialunga, a tiny village. Good rates and very comfy. We did day trips to all the hilltop villages from there.

Montefalco was recommended by our hosts in Spoleto as a good example of a restored walled town with adequate parking, great wine shops and cafes, and without the hassle of large tour groups. It turned out to be a perfect spot for quiet sightseeing with wonderful views across the region from the viewing area at the top of the town. Recommended.

So many hilltop towns are beautiful to look at from a distance, but disappointing to visit internally. Montefalco is not one of those! It is a spectacular town full of things to see and do. Everything happens here and it is a vibrant town which is generously shared with visitors. It has local, now famous, wine and outstanding oilve oil to boost its attraction. There are plenty of walking options within the towns walls and several open churches to visit. See the square, take the wine and oil- yo7 will never be disappointed. It is not known as the balcony of umbria for nothing with its lengthy outward views towards Bevagna, Trevi, Spoleto, Spello, Assisi and Perugia!

We thoroughly enjoyed our walk around this fortified hill top town. Plenty to see and lots of activity including an antiques market, singing and drum playing. It felt that it was going to be a very special evening and night but unfortunately we had to leave.
