Things to Do at Montecchio, Umbria

Walking

This area is ideal for those who enjoy walking and hiking in the hills. For a more gentle stroll, take the waymarked path through the local forest from your Montecchio holiday villa to the archaeological site of the Pre-Roman necropolis of Copio where pre-Roman graves can be seen.

Learn About Olive Oil

Local Festivals

We were a gang of friends wanting a easy escape and this was perfect- the pictures do not do the place justice, it's much much better in real life! Will definitely be coming back next year!
