Umbrian Landscape

Umbria falls very roughly into two parts, each with its own distinct landscape. The western part incorporates the flat plains of the Tiber valley and Lake Trasimeno while the eastern part is traversed by the Apennine range of mountains.

The Apennines run the length of Italy and form its spine much like the Pennines do in England. The highest mountain in the range where it crosses Umbria is Monte Vettore which rises some 2500 metres above sea level. It is snow-capped for a substantial portion of the year and dominates the Piano Grande.
