Travel and Culture in Umbria
Todi’s territory is situated between Perugia and Terni’s provinces and offers to the visitor a sensation of return to those ancient times which the modern civilization seems to have forgotten. While you are walking through the village and its environs, you can enjoy the atmosphere of a land that has got a mystic and a friendly glow at the same time. In fact, Todi is a very old town that dominates the river Tevere’s valley. Todi’s district includes other centres, which are: Collazzone, Fratta Todina, Marsciano, Massa Martana and Monte Castello di Vibio. All of them are famous for their unpolluted environment and their historical-cultural heritage. What marks out the whole area is the warm welcome towards the visitors, the beauty of the landscape and the taste for the genuine and simple food.
