Montone – Umbria’s finest hill town

Spectacular Montone is, in my opinion, one of Umbria’s finest hill top towns. Set in romantic rolling hills the scenery comes alive in the evenings, when shadows are long and darkness is falling. Set away from the main roads, Montone escapes many of the opportunistic day trippers and remains a hidden gem for those of us who have been fortunate enough to discover it. I am sure I will be writing many more posts about Montone, but for now here’s a twilight photograph I took back in 2009.
