A town of only 60 people, Montegiove is located in the north western part of Umbria just 3 kms away from the eccentric park, La Scarzuola (post to follow soon).

A hidden corner of Umbria that very few know about, Montegiove has a very tiny piazza, a bell tower and a single bar/caffe (yes, you read that right).

Who wouldn’t love this dish of artichokes?

The only caffe in town provides fresh and rich Umbrian delicacies with an option of outdoor sitting that has a spectacular view of the Umbrian countryside. 

It has a handwritten menu and a suave interior. I cannot forget my meal of fresh panini and artichokes that I ate there. Montegiove is a retreat from all the other towns of Umbria; a quiet place to plan an Italian holiday.

Just 45 minutes from Perugia and about 2 hours from Florence, this town deserves a visit. It is also near to the beautiful Citta del Pieve.

In my opinion taking a tour of the Castello di Montegiove and then staying at their B&B is the perfect option to explore this area. To know more about my experience at the Castello check here.
