Local Italy

Local Italy

Yoga Borgo lies in the Upper Tiber Valley (Valtiberina) in Umbria, the Green Heart of Italy. We are at the tri-border of Umbria, Tuscany and Le Marche. It is a setting of unsurpassed beauty… a dream landscape of serene valleys, sacred land, and fortified hill towns that have graced the area for centuries. We are a bit off the standard “tourist track” so the area offers a peek into the true Italia and “la dolce vita”. We are surrounded by history, natural beauty, art, culture and local artisan foods and crafts. After more than 11 years here, it is still a special treat for us just to explore the local area and to share that experience with our many guests and friends that come to Yoga Borgo.

Within a half-hour drive of Yoga Borgo we have the historic towns of Citta’ di Castello, Citerna, Monterchi, Anghiari and Sansepolcro. This is the land of Rafaello, Piero della Francesca, Donatello and Della Robbia.

Local farms produce some of the best Pecorino (Sheep), Capra (Goat) and Bufala mozzarella and Burrata cheeses, and wonderful olive oil. In the fall fresh white and black truffles abound locally and on our own land. It is a food lovers paradise.

Just about hour away are Assisi, Perugia, and Arezzo. Slightly farther are beautiful Urbino and Gubbio. La Verna…a most sacred site of Saint Francis, is also within 90 minute’s drive.

We are 2 hours from both Florence and Siena.

Come to Yoga Borgo and enjoy “la dolce vita” of Central Italy!
