The view from the top of the tower in the church is worth every euro. You get a 360 degree view of Todi and the tile roofs everywhere. It's truly one of the best views in all of Umbria. But hurry because they aren't open...More

This was surprise discovery for me. I was traveling twice from Orvieto to Assisi by train and decided to stop at these small towns along the train line. It was a hill town as so many of them were in that region before devastation caused...More

The exterior of this church is less than promising. it was begun in the thirteenth century by the Franciscans but a devastating outbreak of plague meant that there was neither money nor artizans to complete it. Do not miss however, the playful elegance of the...More

Approach is via two steep flights of steps, zig-zag paths with steps, then two more flights of steps - but it's well worth the effort of getting there! The entrance deserves close study - the detailing in the stonework is well preserved, quite witty in...More

The church is humble but has a rich history. The tomb of Jacapone is downstairs but the view from the tower is unrivalled in Todi. You can see for miles and get a great perspective of Todi.

This is an absolutely gorgeous Church inside. The outside is very deceptive. The architecture and the clean lines and beautiful music playing inside is heavenly. This is such a peaceful setting! Come and rest.

This is a fabulous church, found on the main road into Todi. It's not so opulent as some in Italy, but the very simplicity of it is its charm. Recently it has undergone some renovation.to reach the church you have to climb a lot, and...More

Saint Fortunato beckons from above in all its largesse- teasing with its unfinished, less than imposing two faced unfinished exterior: "Make the piccolo pilgrimage up and in to see what's ahead". How did the Franciscans come to express their values in a Gothic setting, virtually...More

The church is different to those in the area, the steps leading up create a design of angles and lines making it look more imposing than it really is. Beware the road at the entrance is in use and cars do shoot by in mad...More

The facade is beautiful: really impressive, at the end of steps, dominating a little square. Inside, all is white and calm ... Meditative and contemplative location. Underneath, in the crypt, there's the grave of Jacopone da Todi, a friar who wrote "Stabat mater", an inspiring...More
