The territory of Umbria
The Umbrian territory is crossed from north to south by the Tiber which with its tributaries and sub-tributaries plows through the Umbrian plain enclosed between hills and mountains. Other characteristic elements of the region are the tuff plateaus in the Orvieto area, and among the lakes we find the Trasimeno, the largest lake in central-southern Italy but not very deep, and smaller but characteristic for the beauty of the surrounding landscape, the Piediluco lake , in the Terni area. Also in the Terni area we find the wonderful Marmore waterfall , which can be visited in its grandeur and spectacularity.
Fishing from river, stream or lake is profitable, thanks to the presence of a dense water fabric.
Formed by a set of small towns located on the ocher hills that loom over the surrounding landscape, Umbria with its medieval and Renaissance atmosphere represents a sought-after tourist destination, thanks also to a mild and constant climate throughout the year.
