So, why Umbria? It has all the charm of Tuscany, but far fewer tourists. A lot of people travel to Tuscany thinking
they’ll be the only foreigners, only to find themselves elbow to elbow with dozens of shuffling tour groups in San
Gimignano or Cortona. Tuscany is magical, but parts of it feel like Italian Disneyland these days.
Travel to Umbria and you’ll experience all of the beauty, all of the charm, and deliciousness of Tuscany -with fewer
crowds and less price-gouging.
All of the towns you will visit in Umbria: Gubbio, Perugia, Massa Martana, Assisi, Spello, and Norciare are lovely and
photogenic with charming local shops.
These towns are good for first-time Italy travelers, with tourist attractions and plenty of English speaking Italians, And
LOTS of delicious food, of course! Imagine plate after plate of fresh foods, cured meats, giant mounds of fresh
ricotta, as well as tons of vegetables picked that day.
If you’re planning a trip to Italy for the first time, consider taking the Umbrian with Coco’s.
