Umbria is one of the most interesting regions in central Italy. It is located on the inland side of the regions of Tuscany and Lazio and offers a scenic, mountainous landscape. Umbria has a very rich historical and cultural heritage. The modern territory covers areas originally inhabited by the Umbrians, an old Italic people, and the Etruscans. It became part of the heartland of the Roman Empire and, in the late middle ages, was part of the vibrant city-state movement that brought about the Renaissance.
Some of the most interesting cities in Italy are found in Umbria, with a rich artistic and spiritual heritage, for example: Assisi, Perugia, Spoleto, Todi, Gubbio, Narni and Orvieto. San Gemini is located in southern Umbria, between the cities of Todi and Terni; from San Gemini it is possible to take day trips to most places in Umbria.
