Description:THE REGION UMBRIA: Umbria is an open air museum. Unique Romanic, Gothic and Medieval masterpieces are here distributed everywhere, in the valleys, up the hills, in the narrow streets and alleys of the ancient towns, on the walls of the poor houses, inside the towns: already in the XIX century the American writer Henry James invited the visitors to walk everywhere, slowly and without an end .
