Montefalco: the balcony of Umbria
Montefalco is perched on the top of a hill overlooking the plain of the Topino and Clitunno rivers. For this panoramic position, it has been given the appellation of the Balcony of Umbria. Montefalco, listed among the most beautiful villages in Italy and famous for its Sagrantino wine and olive oil, is an absolute must-see. Montefalco's name derives from the falcon hunt that Frederick II of Swabia, who stayed here in the 13th century, was fond of. The medieval village preserves one of the most important painting cycles in Umbria, interesting historical artefacts, and is also part of the food and wine itinerary that allows visitors to appreciate the excellent wines with their excellent organoleptic properties.
