Assisi for Kids

Bringing the kids to Assisi? Here are some tips and suggestions to make it a fun visit for your whole family.

Easter Events and Food in Umbria

If you’ll be visiting Umbria over Easter this year, here’s all you need to know about the events, food, traditions, and customs surrounding Easter week!

Beach Day Trips from Umbria to Le Marche

Want to daytrip from landlocked Umbria to the nearest coast? Head over the Appennine mountains to the east, where the Adriatic coast has a number of great seaside resort towns. Here are a few of my suggestions:

Il Mercato delle Gaite: There’s nothing Ye Olde about it!

I have to fess up and admit that it took me years to finally work up the courage to check out what turned out to be one of my favorite festivals in Umbria.

The Day I Fell in Love: Fishing on Lake Trasimeno

It took a day out on a boat with a taciturn captain and a haul of carp to take Trasimeno from resort to real.

Rebecca as Guest rather than Hostess: Five Fabulous Festivals in Umbria

I know, I know. It’s all about fives in travel writing. What can I say? Here’s another pentalogy of favorites from Europe Up Close…this time fabulous festivals!

Selling My Soul to the Devil: Osteria di Pinocchio

The score: Leave your smug hipster attitude at the door. Right next to the table with the complimentary funny hats.

Dust to Dust (or, maybe not): The Mummies of Ferentillo

Sure, it’s easy to be the hero until you find yourself in a dim crypt with mummies, bones, and a epic thunderstorm raging outside.

The Uber-Sagra: La Festa della Cipolla (Cannara)

If I only had one summer left to live and had to choose a single last sagra to attend, (Yes, I realize it’s an unlikely scenario. Humor me.) I would choose Cannara’s over-the-top-out-of-control-mother-of-all-sagras Festa della Cipolla at the beginning of September. Hands down.
