Voici comment l'éditeur présente son guide :

This guidebook describes 40 walks in Umbria, among the ancient towns of Assisi, Perugia, Orvieto and Norcia. Known as the 'green heart' of Italy, the region of Umbria is home to hills reaching up to the Apennines and Sibillini mountains, as well as ancient villages, Roman and Etruscan ruins, dense woodland and nature reserves.

Seasons
Spring to autumn, but year-round is possible - except for mountainous areas in winter where snow is common.

Centres
Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio, Norcia, Spoleto, Orvieto, Passignano sul Trasimeno, Umbertide, Montone

Difficulty
Walks are graded 1-3, from easy to difficult.

Must See
Assisi, Lago Trasimeno and its islands, Spoleto and its famous aqueduct bridge, Monte Cucco, Piano Grande di Castelluccio and Norcia in the Sibillini, wonderful Valnerina and its railway line, Monte Tezio over the upper Tiber valley, glorious Orvieto and the medieval way from Lago Bolsena, medieval Gubbio.

This guidebook by Italian walking expert Gillian Price describes 40 varied day walks in the region of Umbria, taking in the towns of Assisi, Perugia, Orvieto and Norcia. The walks range from 2.5km to 19km in length, the majority of the routes are circular, and several wonderful traverses have been included, with the return to the start point always possible by public transport.

This guidebook also includes lots of practical information about recommended gear and maps to take and tips on local food, wildlife and culture, as well as useful tourist, accommodation and transport information and a brief Italian-English glossary.

Set between Rome and Florence, the region is dotted with UNESCO World Heritage towns. The landscape, like that of neighbouring Tuscany, is one of rolling hills and deep woodlands, without the crowds of other well-known holiday regions in Italy. Walks cross flower meadows, wander down river valleys and also climb onto rugged hills and Apennine mountains, visiting Roman and Etruscan ruins as well as myriad ancient villages.
