The best places to visit in Umbria that probably you heard  are Assisi, Orvieto, Spello… all beautiful places, wonderful villages and towns, but in Umbria there are many other less famous but unique locations and we have chosen FOLIGNO  for this tour including a cooking experience and a private tour hosted by a local sommelier

Foligno is perfect for a break in Umbria between Rome and Florence,  can  be reached by train in about two hours from both cities. You can also combine this break with a tour in Tuscany, Chianti and  any other destinations in central Italy.
