Programs & Workshops

Umbria

Discovering Umbria

This program will showcase photographs from our Umbria Photo Tour which took place last May. Based in the charming hill town of Bettona at the Palazzo Fiumi-LaPlaca, this group of 13 photographers spent 8 days photographing this beautiful region in the heart of Italy, often called the "undiscovered Tuscany." Since the tour was designed as a multi-dimensional experience, the cultural aspects enjoyed by the participants: the art, architecture, cuisine, customs, and people, will also be discussed. You will see how the group's cultural immersion is reflected in their beautiful and inspiring images. The itinerary included visits to the medieval towns of Assisi, Bevagna, Montefalco, Spello, Perugia, Deruta, Montone, Gubbio, Trevi, Todi, Orvieto, an afternoon on the Island of Maggiore on Lake Trasimeno, a visit to a street market, a vineyard, a local festival, a tour of the abandoned Abbey of Montelabate and many deliciously amazing meals featuring authentic local cuisine. With poppies in bloom, May was certainly a nice time to visit Umbria!
