Foligno, Perugia.

Foligno is an ancient town of Italy in the province of Perugia in east central Umbria, on the Topino river where it leaves the Apennines and enters the wide plain of the Clitunnoriver system. It is located 40 km (25 mi) south-east of Perugia, 10 km (6 mi) north-north-west of Trevi and 6 km (4 mi) south of Spello.

When we went off to Assisi for our celebration weekend last month we decided to stop and take a stroll round the town of Foligno en route. Our guidebook had nothing at all to say about this Umbrian town, but you can find out more by checking out the Wikipedia entry. Wikipedia Foligno. It was indeed very quiet when we were there but it is not a town that I imagine is on the average tourists list. If you want to see something of the real Italy is is worth a visit.

I was planning to share some collages of our visit, but as you will read further on this is not going to happen, so sharing some individual photos instead. The full album can be viewed at Flickr.com.

My apologies for the rather unimaginative post, but once again I am working from the iPad which has limited ability for posting as it does not support Adobe Flash Player. I am now taking another enforced blogging break until my VAIO has been fully repaired. There was a setback as it needs to be reprogrammed with all the specific Sony VAIO features. 

If you are able to do so please join me on the Facebook page for News From Italy, the link can be found in the sidebar, where I am continuing to share snippets of  News From Italy.

This post is published on News From Italy and Travel Tales. Back soon I hope!

  1. Any pictures of Italy cannot be described as unimaginative. As always, it's lovely to see a little glimpse through your camera lens. I'm off to visit some friends who used to live in Aviano and now live near Fort Worth, Texas, we're sure to reminisce about holidays I spent with them.

  2. It looks like a lovely, quiet town. I'm impressed you can do this much with your iPad. I don't know how to add photos in blogger from my iPad, and if I add them from my desktop and go to edit the post from my iPad, all the photos just disappear.

  3. So sorry to learn that you are still experiencing problems. Your tenacity to sort out the computer will pay off in the end I am sure. Lovely pictures of Foligno - Italian towns are so delightful.

  4. Sorry that you are still having computer problems, there is nothing worse when you are so used to using it on a daily basis for all sorts of contacts. As you know I am not on Facebook so I will have to wait until you return here. I have to admit to preferring the photos like this instead of in a collage I can see them so much better!! It looks a really pretty place. Keep well Diane

  7. Another lovely Italian village to put a smile of delight on my face LindyLou. Thank you. I love the shrine to Our Lady, I myself have a great collection of photos of shrines from my travels.

    The big turtle is really something! I bet children love it!

  12. Well, I wouldn't call this an unimaginative post! Love the individual photos; so charming!

    I dumped my Sony Vaio about 3 years ago for an iMac and never looked back. If you have the budget, I would highly recommend it.

  14. It always amuses me that Italian guidebooks often don't mention places that if they were in some other country, would merit several pages! :)

  18. The cars seems to be small in there. Well, most of Europe likes small cars. Here in the US they love their huge SUV's. The architecture is marvelous. Love your photos!
