Have you ever breathed in the heavy breathing of galloping horses? The lance spearing the ring followed by a resounding applause. Have you ever listened to the notes of a sax during a street concert?

Umbria hosts events, such as Eurochocolate where chocolate, in all its varied forms is the rightful protagonist, and Umbria Jazz, the jazz music festival that every year gathers together the most important artists of the jazz world. In Spoleto, the Festival dei due Mondi immerses spectators in the noble arts of music, dance, theatre, and literature against the wonderful scenery the town has to offer. Amongst the festivals and popular traditions particularly worthy of attention are: the Festival of the Ceri in Gubbio, where the protagonists are three heavy candles carried in procession to the Basilica of San Ubaldo; and the Cross-Bow Palio held in Gubbio, a contest between the Gubbio crossbowmen and their Tuscan counterparts from Sansepolcro.REQUEST INFO
