Umbria Honey

Umbria – ‘Il miele dell’Umbria’

One of Italy’s smallest regions, Umbria is like a less touristy version of its illustrious neighbor, Tuscany. This landlocked region is a land whose rolling hills are dotted with castles, fortresses and watchtowers and well-preserved hill towns and monasteries. It contains Italy’s largest lake and the head waters of the historic Tiber river begin up the slopes of Monte Fumaiolo. Umbria Tourism
