    I love Umbria as well. I lived in Perugia for 10 years.

    I don’t admit it easily, but I never visited any of the villages you feature in this post, although I drove many times around places and valleys you are talking about.
    But this Italy: there are countless beautiful, ancient and peaceful villages. You can discover new ones everywhere, often finding some very close to home you didn’t even suspect existed until a moment before.

    And by the way, last time I crossed Colfiorito, I actually… stopped by to buy red potatoes!

    It is my opinion that whatever the world has to show us, either in Italy and anywhere else, is for everybody from everywhere to enjoy. Happy you liked Umbria. It belongs to mankind, to all of us.

    It looks like a beautiful countryside. Its amazing how well preserved the centuries old art is.
    The wide plateau of flowers reminded me of another plateau we have here in India, in the western state of Maharashtra.(Ofcourse, its never covered in snow in the winters). Its a place called Kaas which is part of the western ghats, that were recently enlisted as a UNESCO world heritage site.

    Thank you very much for you comment. I am glad Unesco enlists some spots as world heritage, we schould take could care of all the beauty that is left in our world.
