Todi, an undiscovered little gem
Todi is a charming Medieval town with a long history behind. It was dominated by Umbrian people, Etruscans and Romans. The town overlooks the country and it is surrounded by Etruscan fortified walls, increased by Roman and during the Middle Ages. Todi features important historic spots, such as the charming Piazza Maggiore, with its Palazzo della Signoria –an ideal place for a lazy day. Among other places to visit: the Cathedral, Palazzo del Capitano, the Church of San Fortunato and the Church of San Carlo. Just outside the walls of Todi stands the magnificent Church of Santa Maria della Consolazione (1503), possibly built by Bramante. This temple is considered one of the most beautiful of the Italian Renaissance. The view on the valley of Todi is splendid.
