High Expectations for Umbria

I will be spending the next week in the region of Umbria in Italy which I am looking forward to getting out and exploring.  The expectations were set high with the welcome letter from the Valle Di Assisi Hotel:

Umbria is more than just a destination to be visited, but a land and culture to be  experienced.  Exploring this captivating regions of humble saints and visionary artists, gnarled olive trees and towering oaks, pungent truffles and bold wines will captivated, inspire and move you.

So far they are right about the food, I am looking forward to my next meal with great anticipation.  The landscape is dotted with hilltop towns that look as if they have been there since the start of time, vineyards, and even a rainbow!  I am looking forward to seeing what the weekend brings.
