Social Excursion to Todi and its surroundings and Gala Dinner
Small, charming piazzas and gardens tucked away within the city walls as well as a dense labyrinth of streets and alleyways where tourists can easily and pleasantly lose themselves whist discovering the city’s architectural features, hidden away and exquisite, protected by the silence of a more than thousand-year old civilisation.
This is Todi, which rose up and developed thanks to its exceptional architecture, allowing it to rise to a position of pre-eminence over the surrounding areas. Todi is the mirror of its more than one-thousand years of history, retracing the steps of the Umbri (the ancient tribe that first settled in the area) and their Etruscan neighbours, the influence of the Roman Empire and the strength of the free township, up to the glory of the Renaissance and the few remaining signs of the Baroque era.
It is well worth the effort of walking up the hills and steps of one of the country’s most popular tourist destinations to discover the breathtaking views of its forested countryside as well as the Tiber valley. Whether it be the soft blues of the morning or hazy pink sunsets, Todi’s landscape changes with the seasons and always inspires a sense of wonder.
Guided tours will be organized in different locations of Umbria.
The program will be available soon.
