Couple Getaways - U - Umbria
I have a great love of medieval castles and the architecture of old historic towns. So does hubby. If I went I'd probably choose sometime during the summer when they are putting on one of the many festivals where people are dressed in costume, putting on plays, and enjoying what Umbria has to offer.
Umbria’s capital, Perugia, is the world’s most cosmopolitan medieval city. Encircled by walls, it's an upbeat university city with a lively nightlife and a foot-tapping jazz festival each summer. Elegant shops line its palatial Corso Vannucci, while a warren of winding streets tunnel beneath Etruscan arches.
All throughout April I'll be posting about Couple Getaways as part of the A-Z Challenge. I hope you'll stop by for the next destination! No passport necessary ;)
