Just a few streets behind the Cathedral of San Rufino, you’ll find a cute little local restaurant – the Osteria La Piazzetta dell’Erba. Offering seating outside or inside its cosy brick interior, it serves up a delicious array of antipasti, gnocchi, filled pastas and meat dishes such as roast lamb with artichokes or braised beef with cauliflower and licorice.
For the best views in Assisi, head to the Terrazze di Properzio, where small tables look out across a patchwork green landscape. Sunset is the best time to go, with stunning vistas and a glow of amber light across the town.
If you’re looking for some authentic Umbrian produce such as ham and truffles, make a stop at Cacio e Pepe, a small delicatessen on Via Portica. This friendly shop stocks all your Umbrian favourites.

Umbria is predominantly a summer destination, with the season generally running from April to early November. The spring and autumn months are warm and have less crowds, making May, June and September the ideal months to visit. Temperatures are at their hottest in July and August and this is also when Umbria is at its busiest. However, Umbria also enjoys a mild climate in spring and autumn with temperatures rarely going beneath 20 degrees which makes it perfect for visiting at the beginning or end of season too.
At the current time, British citizens do not require a visa to visit Italy.
You don’t have to leave a tip in Italy – most Italians don’t tip for restaurant meals, bar drinks, taxi rides or hair and beauty treatments. However if you do leave a tip, you might receive quicker service.
