£199pp – Italy: 5-nt deluxe Umbria break with wine tasting
Take in views of the "green heart" of Italy, taste delicious local specialities and visit Assisi
Umbria is known for its old-world traditions, medieval hilltop villages and vast landscapes "smothered in woodland or olive groves, and punctuated by hills that roll their way to a hazy horizon" (The Guardian). With this exclusive deal from Fleetway, you can spend five nights there at a hilltop hotel in a walled village for £199 per person.
- Return flights
- Five nights at the 4-star Relais La Corte di Bettona, in a Classic Room
- Daily breakfast
- One dinner at the hotel's restaurant
- One wine-tasting session at the property
- A day in Assisi with return transfers**
Depart from London (Gatwick, Luton or Stansted), Edinburgh or Manchester on select dates November, 2019; February-May, 2020.
You can fly from Bristol from £219 per person; or from Birmingham from £249 per person.
Travel in June, September-October from £229 per person; or in July-August from £249 per person.
Relais La Corte di Bettona is in the centre of the hilltop town of Bettona, around 25 minutes' drive from the city of Perugia. The hotel is set within a restored 14th-century building -- originally a hospital for pilgrims and orphans -- with panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. The town is encircled by medieval walls, part of which date back nearly 3000 years to the Etruscan period.
The Taverna del Giullare restaurant lies in a former oil mill and serves regional specialities, such as black truffles, pecorino di Norcia cheese and local wine. The hotel has an outdoor swimming pool and a spa (supplements apply).
Classic Rooms feature a flat-screen TV and free Wi-Fi.
A wine-tasting experience is included, during which you'll sample a selection of tipples from the local area while a sommelier explains each one.
About Umbria & Assisi
Verdant and vineyard-filled, Umbria is often known as the "green heart" of Italy, and is the only landlocked Italian region that doesn't border another country. The package includes return transfers to Assisi. You'll have free time to wander around its historic centre -- a UNESCO World Heritage Site -- and visit the Basilica di San Francesco, dedicated to St Francis, the founder of the Franciscan order of monks.
If you would like to explore the surrounding countryside, we recommend hiring a car. There are many attractive hilltop towns to visit, as well as the picturesque Lake Trasimeno on the border with Tuscany.
