My recent visit to Perugia gave me another opportunity to tour Umbria with Anne. What started as an outreach via Italian Notebook in 2011 has turned into opportunities to visit hill towns in Umbria with the best travel expert in the region - in 2012 and more recently in June, 2013.
Anne and I spent three days together visiting Perugia, traveling to Spoleto and Spello as well as visiting the beautiful "Piana di Castelluccia di Norcia." While the summer flowers were late arriving due to the cool and wet spring - the views and the drive were still well worth the trip. The town is known for its lentils and people drive for hours to enjoy the beauty of the mountains and the flowers...and of course, buy lentils.
Anne's tours of Perugia and the other cites were interesting and filled with the history of each of the towns and its people. We walked through ancient ruins, churches - took in the incredible views of the Umbrian hillside. Anne's knowledge makes these cities all the more interesting!!
Anne's energy and enthusiasm, added to her knowledge and expertise, make her the best Umbrian Travel Guide!!
