Between the provinces of Perugia and Terni, the Todi territory is an outpost rich in Roman and Etruscan remains, medieval and renaissance churches and palaces, in addition to landscapes of indisputable beauty. The Monti Martani (Martani mountains) form the frame of the internal district and they constitute one of the principal attractions. The vegetation is predominantly composed of ilex, oak and in the higher areas beech. The Monti Martani are rich in caves, funnels and blow-holes caused by water erosion. The same water feeds numerous springs, some of which are famous.
From Todi follow the SP451 towards Spoleto. The fascination of this city stems not only from its monuments, but above all from the relationship with the nature that surrounds it. The Monteluco not only acts as a scenographic backdrop, but as a protagonist in the story of the city, with its forest of ilex protected since ancient times. At the close of the 5th Century it was also a natural place of isolation for hermits, for meditation and prayer. It offers many excursions and long walks in a countryside suited to the exaltation of the sanctity of nature. Today Monteluco is considered an interesting natural and artistic heritage, enough to be inserted in the list of places observed by the UNESCO World Heritage Committee.
From Spoleto continue on the SS3, coming off at Campello. A veritable natural jewel of Umbria, the Fountains of Clitunno (see photo above), for the impression that they evoke, are the ideal place to comprehend the crossover between religion and the environment. Here springs of intense colour and luxurious vegetation create an environment of incomparable beauty.
