Step back in time in the historic Umbrian countryside. Many Italians refer to Umbria as a toned down version of Tuscany, with quality farm-fresh food, less tourists, and wonderful people.
You will have the opportunity to visit some noteworthy towns like Siena, Montepulciano, Perugia, and Assisi.
We have worked diligently on putting together a memorable trip for our family and friends that are joining us in Umbria. These are all completely voluntary - there is no obligation to attend any or all of the activities. If you are interested, simply select the RSVP button beneath each activity to add your name to the list. Kalia will reach out to you to chat logistics.
