The town of Bettona can boast ancient Etruscan origins, insofar as its foundation is dated at around the 8th and 7th centuries B.C. The historical centre is harmoniously balanced with buildings from the 1300s and the 1500s such as the Palazzo Comunale and the Palazzo del Podestà. Overlooking the main piazza is the chiesa and collegiata of S. Maria Maggiore restored in 1600s.
The symbol of the town of Torgiano, the Torre di Guardia (or Baglioni), built in 1274, is the only remaining structure of the ancient defence fortification and still retains its original appearence. The Museo del Vino in this building has a vast collection of ancient and modern objects connected with wine making, printed books, manuscripts and antique engravings on enological topics. Viticulture has become important to this area in the last few years and the production of quality wine has increased, thus making the name Torgiano internationally well- known.
Assisi, stretches out on the slopes of the Monte Subasio, above the plain where the Topino and Chiascio rivers flow. Assisi's oldest nucleus, which is protected by a defensive apparatus made up of eight fortified entrance portals and a long belt of town walls, which are still perfectly preserved, is topped by two castles on peak of the mountain: the Major Castle, reconstructed by the Cardinal Albornoz in 1367 and the Minor Castle. Apart from religious buildings too important to not be considered solely the heritage of Assisi such as the basilica of St. Francis, the tourist can also visit the churches of St. Clare and St.Peter. .
Perugia - The great "Guelf strong-hold" rises up in the region's heart, with its 5 historical quarters closed in by its Etruscan town walls. These enormous bastions formed by cyclopean square masses, were constructed 22 centuries ago and are still visible for long stretches. Entering the city via Porta San Pietro, whose exterior was remodelled by Agostino di Duccio in 1475, you'll arrive at the Basilica of St. Dominic on the right-hand side; the very important National Archeological Museum of Umbria is to be found in the adjacent cloisters and convent.
Continuing along, you'll reach the Piazza del Sopramuro, where the 15th century Palace of the Old University and the adjacent Palace of the People's Captain look down on the square. Further on, after a short climb, you'll find yourself in one of Italy's most important squares, where you'll see the Priors'Palace, the Cathedral and the 13th century Major Fountain at the center. At the extreme end of Corso Vannucci you'll find famous panoramic gardens built on the foundations of the Rocca Paolina, a strong-hold built by Pope Paul III in 1540.
Gubbio - It is a very old town founded by Umbrian people on the top of the Ingino-Mount at the beginning of the first century B.C. The ancient "Ikuvium" is proved by the Tables of Gubbio which are now kept in the Consul's Palace built from 1332 to 1349 and which is one of the most important civil buildings of Italy. A real curiosity is the world's tallest virtual Christmas tree: "drawn" on the slopes of the Ingino-Mount by using a long chain of electric lights which are switched on in the occasion of the "Immaculate Conception" (8th of December), it illuminates the slopes during the whole Christmas period.
