Less than an hour’s drive from Casale Colline Dolci lays Todi. From a dusty backwater a few decades ago, Todi has really made his fame as “the classic Umbrian hill town.”
Perched on a tall two-crested hill overlooking the river Tiber, commanding distant views in every direction, Todi has turned into a fashionable retreat for Rome’s art and media community with great restaurants, bars, shops and a splendid medieval town centre. Indeed, the Italians proudly report on Todi as the world’s most liveable city.
Almost all of Todi’s main medieval monuments – the Duomo, the Palazzo del Capitano, the Palazzo del Priore and the Palazzo del Popolo — front on the main square: Todi’s piazza is therefore one of the most picturesque in Italy and is often used as a movie set.
Todi and Orvieto, together with a number of smaller towns in the neighbourhood have been organizing for more than ten times now “Cittaslow”. Cittaslow is a fantastic slow food feast with celebrated musicians. The winning formula is a happy marriage between music and authentic Italian tastes. Buon Appetito!
