The most characteristic Umbrian products, totally dependant on the course of the seasons, are EVO oil and truffles. Many companies, most of them family-run, concentrate on this kind of products. The Borgo Petroro Relais, through its restaurant Locanda Petreja, actively collaborates with the Frantoio Passo della Palomba (Todi), where it is possible to organise visits and tasting events, and Urbani Tartufi, a business that has roots going back six generations, which has conquered an important part of the truffle market on a worldwide scale.
Umbria has been the land of artisans and craftsmen for centuries. Its economy is upheld by family networks and by people who know how to continually renew its traditions. For this reason, Borgo Petroro is always ready and available to advise you on guided tours of artisanal companies, where to meet with people who know how to face the challenges of innovation and digitalization, by keeping a constant eye on detail and the human aspect of their work. Among its most famous products, Umbria is distinguished for its cashmere and ceramics, not to mention many other less famous products.
The Reception is always available to illustrate for you all the possibile visits to our partners.
The city of art par excellence, Todi boasts an extraordinary abundance of interesting cultural and religious sites. Home town of the medieval poet and scholar Jacopo dei Benedetti, better know as Jacopone da Todi, this timeless city is full of art places: its two important churches, the Roman-Gothic cathedral of Maria SS Annunziata and the renaissance Temple dedicated to Santa Maria della Consolazione, are a fascinating example of two different ages of Italian architecture; you can also discover other lesser known sites, such as the Roman Cisterns, the Painted House or the Museums of the Pinacoteca, of the Civiltà Contadina and the Lapidario.
The Reception will provide you with all the necessary information to make your visit to Todi enjoyable.
Visiting Umbria means discovering famous and beautiful cultural places, such as the wonderful cities of Perugia, Orvieto, Assisi, Spoleto and Gubbio and the enchanting towns of Spello, Deruta, Narni, Città della Pieve, Norcia, Castiglione del Lago and many others.
For each of these towns, we can assist you with the organization of special itinerary and useful advices on how to get there, where to eat what to see.
Get some ideas for a different kind of trip, expecially if you’ve already visited Umbria more than once and know its major attractions, take a look at itineraries out of mainstream tourism: visit small towns like Rasiglia, Castelluccio di Norcia, Panicale, Solomeo, Civitella del Lago or the Tempietto di Campello sul Clitunno.

In Umbria, the wildness of natural countrysides is without any doubt more dominant compared with anthropized landscapes. Experiencing this region means exploring its nature, the countrysides, the mountains and the waters, through open air activities scanned by the slow rhythm of nature.
