Map of Umbria

Umbria, east of Tuscany and west of the Marche region, produces some of the best olive oils. Familiar as the home of chocolates from Perugia, St. Francis of Assisi, light white wines of Orvieto, and the opera of Spoleto, Umbria has hilly terrain and great climate for growing olives.

Umbria's olive oils are crafted from the olives of the Frantoio, Leccino, Moraiolo, and Agogia and Raggiola varieties. The oils tend to have an artichoke and green tomato aroma, and sometimes have the peppery taste of Tuscan oils. Many of the Umbrian oils have a fruity flavor with a great deal of body.

Umbria is also well known for Gubbio and its fine ceramics.
