There is a local saying: “Go to Deruta to buy a pitcher and to Torgiano to fill it.” This is because Torgiano is famous for its excellent wines, namely the prestigious ‘Torgiano Rosso riserva’. You will find a museum in Torgiano dedicated to wine and olive oil, both important products in the local area.
Bettona is small but worth visiting to see the Chiesa di Santa Maria Maggiore, the small art collection in the Palazzo della Podestà (both with works by renowned master Perugino), as well as the remains of the Etruscan and medieval town walls.
Spello, on the lower slopes of Monte Subasio, was built as a colony on the Via Flaminia, the old Roman road between Rome and the Adriatic. Today, you can see the remains of many Roman monuments such as the amphitheatre, a temple, the ancient walls and two Roman gates.
