Montefalco sits on a hilltop in central Umbria surrounded by vineyards and open countryside. Thanks to its position it is known as 'the balcony of Umbria' and the views are stunning. Life in the town centres around the main piazza which sits at the very top of the hill. The old town is fun to explore, don't miss the frescos by Benozzo Gozzoli at the Museo di San Francesco.

The town produces Sagrantino wine, which earned DOCG status in 1992. The rare Sagrantino grape, grown only in this area, produces wine that is full bodied and highly tannic, an excellent accompaniment to the roast meat, hearty soups, pasta dishes and of course truffles that the area is famous for.
