When you think about Italy, postcards with great cities of art immediately come to mind: Rome, Venice, Florence, Milan. These places are undeniably wonderful and rich in history and traditions; they are considered essential destinations for those who wish to visit the “bella Italia.”
Yet, there is still a part of Italy that remains hidden, one holding unexpected surprises for its visitors, a small box of secrets that opens to its adventurers
Central Italy – Le Marche, Umbria, Southern Tuscany – is the cradle of the Italian civilization, the birthplace of that culture and art so famous all over the world. Here, in fact, in the current valleys of Umbria, Tuscany, and Lazio, is where the Etruscans built their first settlements, giving us beautiful archaeological sites and the first cities of Italy. The Romans also left traces of their architectural and urban discoveries in every small town as they began building their empire in this lush, green cradle. Some of those architectural imprints include long aqueducts, underground baths, majestic gates, and historical city centers built as if they were ancient Roman cities.
Afterward, with the flourishing of the Renaissance and the municipalities, these same small settlements became overlooked and turn into the hidden gems of today. Cities like Urbino, Macerata, Perugia, Città di Castello, Ascoli Piceno, Orvieto, and Assisi preserve these historical roots where time seems to have stopped. Here then the chance of rediscovering in these areas an authentic Italy, made of history, art, and culture mixed with the daily life of these small villages.
