    The hotel is lovely, with gracious service and a good restaurant. Our room had a gorgeous view of the countryside as you can see in my main photo of Assisi. Our only minor problem came when my hairdryer blew the fuse, but that was very quickly corrected.

    Unique Quality: The columns of the hotel link to the church of San Francis. The terraces command a wonderful view of the town and surrounding countryside.

    The guestbook displays the signatures of many famous people including Jimmy Stewart, Marlene Dietrich, and Charlie Chaplin.

    Directions: adjacent to the basilica

Meal with a view

The delicious food took second place to the glorious view at the terrace restaurant of the Hotel Subasio. The food, wine and company in addition to the ambiance made for a delightful evening.

Drive up Monte Subasio

by l_riva_l

From Assisi you can drive up to the top of the mountain through the regional park (Parco del Monte Subasio). High above the treeline you'll enjoy a 360 degree view of the valleys below. The road continues on back to Assisi.

Eremo delle Carceri

by Polly74

The first nucleus consisted in a chapel with several caves around, at a height of 791 m on the slopes of the Mount Subasio in a splendid ilex-wood.
St. Francis and his disciples retired here for their prayers and meditations.

In 1400 St. Bernardine of Siena erected a small convent and the church of S. Maria delle Carceri, which enlarged and incorporated the previous chapel.

Next to it is located the Cave of St. Francis.

You may take a suggestive walk through the ilex-wood along the caves of the hermits

Umbria is a secret hiking + biking paradise

by Trekki

Given the landscape with many hills and valleys, Umbria has one of the finest hiking possibilities in Italy. Yes, of course there are the Alps in the north, but by then, these are mostly overflown with masses in summer and this often has a very much negative influence on the authenticity and serenity of the landscape. And as Umbria is not yet mass travel and hiking destination, it is definitely a much more desirable place for those who seek almost untouched nature.
From what I could see during my (road) trip, Valnerina (Parco fluviale del Nera) is one of the most fascinating ones for longer or shorter hikes. Near Assisi is famous Monte Subasio, the highest peak nearby with extended oak forests. And for the ambitious mountaineerers Monte Sibillini in Le Marche (at the eastern border of Umbria) offer any kind of alpine-like hiking (Monte Sibilla is 2175 m).

On my way to Orvieto, I drove along river Tevere, which looked gorgeous for all kind of hiking, cycling and water sports as well. It is Parco fluviale del Tevere.

The website “Parks.it” is a good start to look for more details and other parks as well. As Le Marche and Umbria are so close and many parks are at their borders, I suggest to check both:
National Parks in Umbria,
National Parks in Le Marche.

When it comes to cycling, Umbria offers tours for every level of experience. The hills and valleys are maybe more for the mountainbikers, but Valle Umbra is perfect for the ones who prefer less hills. And given a very much relaxed traffic in Umbria, cycling tours will not end in hospitals. I found that Umrian traffic is extremely “non-Italian”. No one races. You can book guided bicycle tours or bring your own (or rent one) and travel on your own.
Some possible itineraries are given on these websites:
cycling Umbria (1),
cycling Umbria (2) ,
cycling Umbria (3) ,
cycling Umbria (4) .
Or if you check the website bikemap.net, you’ll find an abundance of routes, the users did describe (if the language does not jump to English, change it in the menu top right hand side):
cycling pathes.

Update January 2009:
I just found another excellent page with biking tours in Umbria:
Bike in Umbria
This one is even better, you can chose between the "types" (easy, medium, difficult) and then pick out the routes according to a clickable map. The single routes are described with detail map, profile, sights to see and downloadable GPS profiles and detailed roadbooks. Excellent!! Avaliable in Italia, English, German and Spanish.
