Umbria is an interior central Italian region that is often overshadowed by its neighbour Tuscany. Think of it as Tuscany without the hordes: hill towns, undulating topography, Renaissance art, a slice of Apennine drama, and delicious pasta and wine.

What to eat?

Strangozzi al tartufo nero (rustic long pasta in a black truffle sauce) and all the pork products from Norcia, the home of Italy’s master butchers

What to see?

The dazzling exterior of Orvieto’s duomo, and the frescoes inside by Luca Signorelli and Fra Angelico

What to do?

Tour the ceramic workshops of Deruta.

Bocconcini-Sized Tales

At my husband’s request, I begrudgingly bought tazzine from the first Deruta workshop we visited (how were we to compare?!), and now those espresso cups are my most prized possession.
