When three couples from Australia were planning a trip to Italy ( which already included a 7 day Mediterranean cruise) they wanted to continue their holiday in Italy with 6 days in Umbria.
Some internet research discovered Love-Umbria and from the moment the first contact was made with Cristiana Bradley it was a win-win situation for we Aussies.
Picked up at the boat in Civitavecchia by the ever present Gianluca (who was our driver for the whole time), booked into great accommodation for 3 nights at Hotel S.Luca in Spoleto and 3 nights at the Nun Hotel in Assisi, guided by Irene and Isabella, taken to places of interest we would never have discovered, dining in fabulous iconic Umbrian restaurants...we couldn't believe our luck.
Golf was arranged and a half day hike was also included.
We left Assisi in the mini van that Love-Umbria had also organised to drive to Elba Island and unanimously decided that these 6 days were an undisputed highlight of our time in Italy. We had been introduced to a part of Italy by people who loved their job and in turn we fell in love with Umbria.
We couldn't have done it without Love-Umbria.

We just spent a week in Tuscany and one of our favorite activities was taking a truffle hunt with Sergio and his adorable dog, Rocco! We were met by Irene, who spoke both Italian and English and she went with us on the hunt. It was so much fun watching Rocco run around sniffing for a truffle, finding "the spot" and then digging it up! We learned a lot about this regional specialty and Irene was wonderful. When it was over, we were blown away by the delicious, outdoor dinner that Sergio and his wife provided! They even served wine from their own small vineyard! This was a FANTASTIC activity and it was great that Love-Umbria handled all of the details. I highly recommend this company for a unique truffle hunt!

My family and I recently traveled to Italy and used Love-Umbria Tours. We could not be more pleased with the experience. We were especially impressed with our driver, David. David was fluent in a number of languages, and was able to communicate with all seven members of my family without trouble. He was always punctual, extremely friendly and kept the black Mercedes we traveled in absolutely spotless. We greatly appreciated his high level of professionalism. Christina was our tour guide in Lucca and like David, exhibited the utmost professionalism. Christina was very friendly, and all seven of us were happy with her level of expertise and pleasant attitude. Marco was our tour guide in Florence and like his colleagues he was professional, extremely knowledgeable and always friendly. Love-Umbria Tours played a large part in making our trip overseas seamless and we had so much fun with David, Christina and Marco. We would highly recommend their services to anyone looking to tour Italy. Thanks again! –The Garofalo family.

We asked Cristiana to put together a one day bike excursion around beautiful Umbria, and she out did herself! We arrived to find lovely Antonella waiting for us with top notch bikes. We rode all morning throught the most beautiful countryside one could possibly imagine. We even stopped at an olive orchard, and Antonella asked the farmers if we could help pick olives for a few minutes! We rode onto the walled village of Bevagna where a lovely lunch featuring local fare at a gourmet restaurant awaited us. We finished up the day with more cycling througn beautiful countryside. If you are looking for a memorable day outside of the city, get in touch with Cristiana!

My husband and I just returned from our two week vacation in Italy that included a day in the Spoleto area for a truffle hunt and an amazing lunch at the Bartoli Agriturismo. We met Irene of Love-Umbria Tours and spent the day with the Bartoli family at Patrico in the hills above Spoleto. What an wonderful experience! Irene was very accomodating and extremely knowledgeable about the history, flora, fauna, culture, etc. The truffle hunt at the Bartoli Agriturismo was so much fun and we were treated like family for the delicious traditional-style lunch which included several dishes with the local truffles and other home-grown ingredients. Thank you Cristiana for arranging this great day for us.
