Where to Propose in Umbria

My GF and I are planning to travel to Italy this December. We are starting in Rome (Dec 22-26), then to Umbria (Dec 26-30), and finally to Florence (Dec 30-Jan 1).

This will be our first time traveling together in Italy and first time ever in Umbria. We have reservations at the Borgo dei Conti Resort in Perugia. It's a fairly new resort, and the reviews are a bit limited. So I hope it works out nicely for us.

While in Umbria, I've listed a few things to do and visit:

- Assisi

- Perugina chocolate factory

- Montalcino winery or two

- Spoletto

My main goal however is to find a romantic place where I can propose. Any ideas or suggestions to my proposal question or Umbria itinerary would be greatly appreciated!

P.S. My original plan was to stay and propose in Siena. Unfortunately, the hotel I was thinking was not available, and since we have already been to Siena, it would be nice to be in a completely new area in Italy.

I think this depends very much on the character of your GF. Does she like something fancy and classic or something alternative and a bit crazy? Or is she a cozy-homey type? A good restaurant and the help of some of our wonderful wines (it's by the way Montefalco and not Montalcino if you are in Umbria) it's a classic. And you can pick a castle or a rustic agriturismo, depending on the "level" you wish.

On the other side of the spectrum, you could pick a very good view point, provided that you have reasonably nice weather. For example the top of the exagonal tower of Assisi's fortress. In December there will not be many tourists if you are not there in Xmas day or New year.

Best wishes and lots of happiness!
