Campello sul Clitunno and surroundings

 



 

Thanks to its strategic location, Borgo Campello is the perfect starting point to visit art towns, little hamlets, and relax as you go trekking immersed in nature.

Campello sul Clitunno offers its visitors plenty of activities in winter as well as in the summer months, so you can fully enjoy the beauties of Umbria all year round.

Thanks to its landscapes and to the fusion of art and culture, Umbria is the perfect place for those who love nature and want to discover woods, castles and fantastic towns.

Campello sul Clitunno

Immersed in the heart of green Umbria, Campello sul Clitunno offers a magnificent landscape, enriched by a priceless cultural heritage.

It consists of two nuclei: Campello Alto (Castle) and Campello Basso (La Bianca).

The Castle of Campello Alto, built in the 10th-11th centuries by the Baron of Bourgogne Rovero di Champeaux, still has its walls – intact at that. Destroyed by a fire in the 14th century, it was enlarged in the same century, and that is what we see today. The water wells and the community ovens, the church of San Donato and the scent of antiquity all contribute to create a magical atmosphere. The arches, windows and turrets of the old dwellings, al perfectly preserved, maintain the characteristic and original typical aspect of a fortified hamlet. Visiting the Castle at night is a fantastic experience.

 

 

Uphill, along the ancient Via Flaminia, visitors can see the Source of the Clitumnus and the Temple of Clitumnus, a UNESCO Heritage Site since 2011.

 

The Source of the Clitumnus are the main attraction: a green oasis of peace and relaxation where visitors can walk and enjoy the sounds and colours of nature.

The Temple of Clitumnus is a little church of still unknown origins, perhaps dedicated to San Salvatore and dating back to the Lombard era. The temple contains the history and the mystery of the place.

Hamlets

There are countless hamlets and little towns worthy of a visit, as well as many art towns. Spoleto, Assisi, Spello, Bevagna, Montefalco, Trevi, Foligno, Gubbio, Cascia, Norcia and Perugia: these are only some of the most relevant locations, only a few minutes by car from the Relais.

Here visitors can discover wine and food traditions and local artisans.

Countless artisan workshops of glass, wood, pottery, loom fabrics with antique designs and reenactment events. Find yourself immersed in the past.

Outdoor activities

From excursions to trekking, and including calm, regenerating walks among the green.

Sports lovers are just a few kilometres away from golf fields, tennis courts, stables, swimming pools, rafting and paragliding.

 

Do not miss the Cascate delle Marmore waterfalls, where you can admire the beauty of the water after a walk or practice sports such as canoeing, kayaking and rafting.

 

For the little ones, the town of Scheggino is the home of the largest theme park in central Italy, including adventure itineraries and rafting.

Umbria on the table

Umbria is famous for its delicious cuisine, oil and wine.

Truffles, asparagus, wild vegetables, cold cuts and cheeses will all tickle your taste buds.

 

Along the “strada del vino” (the wine road), near Montefalco, visitors can find many vineyards where they can taste the excellent wines made with local grapes.

Local olive oil is also very famous, and it can be tasted in the many oil mills peppered all over the territory.
