I have been to this place before and I really enjoy my time in Bettona and the surrounding area of Umbria. Michael made some wonderful dinners for us all and help to coordinate tours and meals out as well. He is a great host.

Our stay at Palazzo Fiumi-LaPlaca was nothing short of amazing! We could see Assisi across the valley that lies between Bettona and Assisi right from our apartment windows. Each evening the Swallows flew around the walled city creating one of the most relaxing atmospheres that...More

We found the apartment we rented to be wonderful, we loved the location, and the view was spectacular. The location was utterly perfect an absolutely wonderfully inviting neighborhood in this walled city of historical architecture. The apartment has a very ‘open’ feeling, with wide open...More

About the neighbourhood
Bettona is a small hill town, originally an Etruscan settlement, is completely surrounded by walls — both Etruscan and medieval. Located within 15 kilometers of both Perugia and Assisi and convenient to the highways that ring Umbria. The Perugia/Assisi airport (now called San Francesco) is serviced by RyanAir and only 25 minutes away.
Bettona is a remarkably tranquil spot with about 350 people living within the walls and about 3500 residents in the Comune (comprised of 4 'frazione'). A morning walk around the walls is a wonderful way to start the day here, followed by a cappuccino and dolce in the bar in the main piazza, and then off for an excursion to one of the many small towns nearby.
There are two restaurants in town, a small archeological and painting museum (a lovely Perug...

How to get there
Railway: Assisi: 15.0 km
The closest large airport is Rome's Fiumicino. There is also the small international airport (served by RyanAir) of Perugia/Assisi (now San Francesco). It is about 25 minutes away.

TRAIN: It is easy to take a train from the airport. You will need to transfer in Rome for a train to Assisi. Or, you can pick up a rental car at Perugia or Foligno.

CAR: Most guests rent a car and drive to me.
Head in the direction of Rome and the road will turn into the GRA (Grande Raccordo Anulare), which is a ring road around Rome. You are looking for the A1 to Firenze (Florence). Exit at uscita 10, but 8, 9, and 10 all have the same exit. Keep heading for Firenze / A1 and get a ticket. This much should have taken you about 40 minutes.
Once on the A1 you drive for about 25 minutes and exit at ORT...
