Umbria Italy

Explore Umbria from Genius Loci

Located in the heart of Umbria, Genius Loci is the ideal base for your holiday in Umbria Italy. Within 5-30 minutes, you will find the major towns of interest (Bevagna, Montefalco, Spoleto, Spello, Assisi, Todi, Deruta); 30 minutes will take you to Perugia; 40 minutes to Lake Trasimeno; one hour to Gubbio and Cortona; 1 hour and 10 minutes will take you to the Tuscan towns of Siena, Montepulciano, Pienza and Montalcino.

Umbria beckons, beguiles and enchants its visitors with its “spirit of place.” Its attractions include the region’s renowned landscape, art, picturesque hill towns and “treasures of the table.” Even the short drives through the bucolic countryside from sight to sight constitute an integral part of the excursions themselves.

A Rich History

Umbria is an ancient land of saints, poets and artists, centuries-old traditions, world famous handicrafts (i.e. hand-loomed fabrics and ceramics) renowned wines, acclaimed food and unrivaled beauty and charm. Every town or hamlet abounds in artistic treasures and kindles a sense of discovery. Umbria is home to some of the finest works of Cimabue, Simone Martini, Ambrogio Lorenzetti, Giotto, Benozzo Gozzoli, Perugino, Pinturicchio and Luca Signorelli as well as several of the most outstanding examples of Romanesque architecture in central Italy.

Many of the most famous works in the history of art are only minutes away at the Galleria Nazionale dell’Umbria in Perugia and at the Basilica di San Francesco di Assisi.

Festivals Abound in Umbria

Umbria hosts many outstanding international festivals, such as Eurochocolate, Umbria Jazz, Festival dei Due Mondi and Il Mercato delle Gaite to mention just a few. All are less than 30 minutes away from Genius Loci.

The proximity to all the major points of interest makes it possible to take in the sights and still have plenty of time to enjoy the Inn itself. Genius Loci is ideal for longer stays which allow you to explore, experience, relate to and immerse yourself in the “spirit of place,” in the true essence of Umbria, and in the unique and magical atmosphere of Genius Loci.
