    Hello, The week has been great.
    Best Regards

    My family and I returned Saturday and the villa was all you said it was times 1,000%. The villa was clean, the beds and linens were perfect, the housekeeper cleaned and ironed our clothes as needed and we had fresh eggs every morning form our own chicken coop. We had great weather, great food and great transportation and Roscoe took care of all us like we were family……………… he and is his mother were perfect hosts. I have attached a picture of our four daughters and their husbands (and my wife and in the middle) leaving the villa on our last day. As you know I was very nervous going to a strange place sight unseen and I wanted this experience to be perfect for my kids and it was that and more. Thank you for pointing us in the right direction.

    In Orvieto, visit the fanciful Gothic Duomo, which soars seven stories high. Inside are magnificently vibrant and graphic frescoes of the Apocalypse by Luca Signorelli. Don’t miss the Pozzo di S. Patrizio, a historic well built by architect-engineer Antonio da Sangallo the Younger of Florence, between 1527 and 1537.

    Gubbio is so perfect, it looks like a medieval movie set. The main monuments and sightseeings of the city include the Roman Theatre which is still in use for performances, the massive Palazzo dei Consoli, the duomo and the Palazzo Ducale.

    Gubbio is best known for its palio, the Corsa dei Ceri, a spectacular run held every year on May 15, in which three teams run through throngs of cheering supporters up much of the mountain from the main square in front of the Palazzo dei Consoli to the basilica of S. Ubaldo, each team carrying a statue of their saint.

    In Assisi, you’ll want to visit the famous basilica dedicated to Italy’s patron saint, Francis. Frescoes by Giotto vividly tell the story of St. Francis’s life. In the Piazza del Comune you’ll find a church inserted into the remains of the ancient Temple of Minerva. Above town stands the Rocca Maggiore, a fortress that protected citizens during attacks. For a dose of nature and spiritual contemplation, walk to the hermitage, the Eremo dell Carceri.

    In Spoleto, visit the Roman theater and the archeological museum for a view of ancient Umbria. Go see the pre-Renaissance frescoes by Fra Lippo Lippi and Pinturicchio. The church of San Salvatore is one of Italy’s oldest and is set within the remains of an ancient Roman temple.

    In Deruta, stroll the color-splashed streets where Italy’s most famous hand-made ceramics are produced.

    Visit charming Città di Castello, which packs a lot into such a small town, with palaces, churches, towers, and -of course- a castle, all sitting pretty and begging to be explored.

    In Todi you’ll find all the main sights conveniently concentrated onto the Gothic Piazza del Popolo, which is itself set over top of an ancient Roman cistern system. Below town is the striking Renaissance church of Santa Maria della Consolazione.

    In Perugia, be sure to see the frescoes by local artist Pietro Perugino in the Galleria Nazionale dell’Umbria and in the town hall’s Sala del Cambio. Step back to ancient times at the Etruscan arch and Etruscan well. Enjoy the lively atmosphere at the large fountain, the Fontana Maggiore. Sample the chocolates named for the city.

    Perugia plays host to international visitors with its acclaimed annual Umbria Jazz Festival, held each July. A wildly popular chocolate festival every October pays homage to the city’s sweet side.

    Spoleto offers up culture, dramatic performances and musical concerts during the Festival dei Due Mondi.

    Gubbio’s Roman theatre is a dramatic setting for summertime, open-air performances.
