MY TOURS » Todi

Defined by someone as a “small solitary city” (because it is far from interregional connections), but betterknown as the “the most liveable city in the world”, Todi is a city dipped in a placid tranquillity, perfectly integrated with the most beautiful surrounding countryside. The historical, medieval centre boasts sacred buildings of great prestige while outside the walls there is the famous Renaissance church of Saint Maria della Consolazione.
Todi is more than just a pretty face. In the 1990s, Professor Richard Levine, a researcher at University of Kentucky in the US, conducted a study on sustainability in towns around the world. Gorgeous Todi came out on top. After that, the Italian press called Todi the world's most livable city - that is, the city with the world's highest quality of life.

There is limited parking inside the ancient city walls, so your best bet for discovering Todi is to leave your vehicle in one of the car parks outside the walls and go on foot. There is also a funicular to take you up the hill, which provides a wonderful view of the Umbrian countryside and the spectacular valley below.

As you approach the city, the first building you see is the noble Renaissance temple of Santa Maria della Consolazione. Probably based on a design by Bramante, it is one of the top architectural masterpieces of the 16th century.
The excursions can be organized over half a day or an entire day with lunch made up of produce tastings typical to the region, including wine and oil that is all thoroughly Umbrian! And with the assistance of “Umbria in Tour”
