Umbria – the ‘green heart’ of Italy – is a region of rolling hills and woodlands that lies just north of Rome and south-east of Florence, bordering Tuscany and the Sibillini. Providing inspiration to writers and painters over the centuries, this area also offers walkers hundreds of kilometres of waymarked paths to enjoy from the spring right through to the autumn.
Routes set off from such charming Umbrian towns as Assisi, Perugia, Gubbio, Orvieto and Norcia, passing through meadows and forests and onto rocky, rugged hills.
Umbria is like an undiscovered Tuscany - its landscapes and towns are just as beautiful but prices are lower and you are likely to have the footpaths to yourself. This is the first English-language guide to the whole region.
p83 some waymarks are reportedly missing on the descent to the chapel so take care. Don't hesitate to turn back if you're uncertain about the way to go.

Chapter 6 around Norcia and the Sibillini mountains: The area has undergone extensive damage due to recent earthquakes and walkers should avoid these areas for the time being.
Chapter 5 - Walks 30-34. The Valnerina: This area has also undergone extensive damage due to recent earthquakes and walkers should avoid these areas for the time being.
Walk 23: the Ponte Romano is being repaired but a new bridge nearby allows you to do the walk
Walk 28: Ponte delle Torri is currently closed so slot into the walk at San Pietro.
