It's difficult, given the paucity of reviews on TripAdvisor, to imagine how so many have missed this altogether impressive Todi's Tempo di Santa Maria della Consolation, immediately outside the official town itself. Perhaps it has something to do with Umbria yet so emphatically on the rise. It's natives reminded me of the region's overall poverty (hard to imagine) only fifty... 更多
Perfect balance between art, nature and architecture. Come, sit and admire it. And it is just the starting point of an unforgettable trip to this unique historic town.
As I walked along Via Melsungen in Todi, surrounded by trees, I caught a glimpse of something through the trees but I could not work it out.

Many a wedding has taken place in this church, as well as weekly services and other local... 更多

Bonus was that people were setting up for a wedding. It... 更多
