Todi Holidays

Todi is a traditional hilltop town in Umbria, full of medieval character and an authentic charm. Todi is a town and comune of the province of Perugia in central Italy.
Located just 40 km from Assisi, Perugia and Orvieto, the town is perched on top of two high steep hills separated by a deep valley, and enjoys wonderful views overlooking the River Tiber and surrounding countryside. The name Todi perhaps means "border" (tutere) or "fortified hilltop" (tutus). The touristic territory of Todi offers to the tourist a relaxing moment and at the same time a sensational return to ancient past.

History suggests that Todi was founded by the Umbrians in about 2700 BC. Both the Etruscans and then the Romans left traces of their civilization. Todi is surrounded by three more or less complete concentric walls: the outermost is medieval, the middle wall is Roman, and the innermost is recognizable as partly Etruscan. Sights include a colossal Roman niched substructure of uncertain purpose, the slight ruins of a Roman amphitheatre, about a dozen smaller churches, and a few Renaissance or classical palazzi, among which the most important is one by Vignola, round out the sights. The neighbourhood of the city has many historical castles, fortresses and ancient churches.
