In this time of year, with the first cold and the days getting shorter, I suggest a weekend between Perugia and Umbria, a region that offers its best with the colors and scents of Autumn.
Don’t miss a visit to the historical center of Perugia, shaped by the Middle Ages and the Renaissance; the city is an Etruscan installation.
Here is the Fontana Maggiore in Piazza IV Novembre, with its beautiful tiles, and on the backdrop you can see the Palazzo dei Priori and the Cathedral of San Lorenzo.
The walls of Perugia, made of large boulders, are crossed by Porta Marzia, Porta Mandorla and by Arco Etrusco..
For a dinner that combines a modern cuisine to traditional dishes of Umbria you can choose La Taverna – Via delle Streghe, 8 ( tel. +39 (0)75 5724128 )
In these days in Perugia is taking place Eurochocolate, a must for chocolate addicted.
If you have time, I recommend a trip to Lake Trasimeno where you can enjoy yourself with nice walks in the villages along the lake.

The sweeter and more tasty event of the year is just around the corner, from the 14th to the 23rd October the Eurochocholate in Perugia celabrates its 18th birthday.
Do you love chocholate and have always a bar in your kitchen? Or does chocolate represent for you a little whim to have only sometimes? Now you can fall into temptation and enjoy all the tastes of the most famous chocolate companies.
Be ready to have an experiences which will satisfy all your five senses, from taste to sight. After visiting the refined Chocolate Boutique, you can have a break at the Chocolate House, drinking your coffee while tasting the best chocolate of the kermess. Since it’s going to be colder and colder, why don’t you drink your first hot chocolate right here? You can sip it while walking through all the chocolate stands.
On the 16th October you can also stop to watch artists, who create their wondeful chocolate sculptures, such as the huge Italy, made to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Unity of Italy.
And after spending the whole day walking and tasting, there is nothing better than sitting and listening to some Italian and foreign writers, telling something about
their last book.
Eurochocolate is not only an event for adults, it also enables children to live their “chocolate” experience. They will have the chance to attend courses for little confectioners and prepare cakes and biscuits together with their parents.
Last but not least, make your holiday even more memorable discovering our B&Bs in Umbria.
Lakes in Italy are among the main beauties of our landscape heritage, natural paradises that are part of our national pride and which, every year, attract tourists from all over the world.
The most famous are Lake Como, Lake Garda and Lake Maggiore that are all located in the north of Italy and compose the famous “Italian Lake District.”
The delightful towns that spread around these lakes are well connected and close to the major airports in the north such as Milan, Bergamo, Brescia and Verona, so they are easily reachable from wherever you leave.
These blue gems, scattered throughout the peninsula, are poetic areas, evocative of a past literature. The atmosphere that we live walking along the shores of an Italian lake is indeed unique and indescribable, the mountains stand around and then come down to meet the lake banks where many hotels rose to let tourists enjoy a spectacular lake view during their stay.
Finally, do not forget other famous Italian lakes such as Lake Trasimeno in Umbria and Lake Bracciano in Lazio. These two peaceful oasis are perfect for those seeking beautiful landscapes where relaxing the mind and Bracciano, for example, is itself a nice historic town with an historic castle open to the public.
