Historical sites near Umbria holiday homes

Umbria dates back well into antiquity as the name itself derives from the name of the ancient Italic people who occupied the area before the Romans expanded. A lot of history still remains from the millennia since including the city of Terni. The Umbrians founded this city back in the 7th century BCE. While there’s little left of that time, several ruins from the Roman occupation remain such as the Amphitheatre and the small town of Casulae. You can also visit the Civic Museum of the Palazzo dei Consoli in the city of Gubbio to see the Iguvine Tablets. These tablets were written by the Umbrians and detail the cultural practices of the ancient Italic peoples. When in Perugia, you can visit the Piazza IV Novembre, the city square that has been used for meetings since the time of the Etruscans.

How to get around

Transport around your Umbria holiday rental

Getting around Umbria from your holiday rental is easy thanks to the numerous transportation options available. This may seem odd considering how spread apart the towns are, but there are rail lines connecting all of the major communities to bigger cities like Florence and Rome. Keep in mind, you may need to change lines, depending on where you’re heading. It’s also important to note that some of the medieval towns are situated on hills meaning the closest train station won’t specifically be in town. Buses can get you there and you can always find a self-drive hire car.
