Perched on a hill like a beautiful terrace over the Umbrian valleys, Todi is a typical Italian medieval village, authentic and full of charm.
The city center: Piazza del Popolo
The churches of Todi
Besides its beautiful cathedral Todi has a number of interesting churches to visit, three of them just can't be missed.
Todi is truly an inexhaustible source of surprises, so much so that even its subsoil holds itineraries of great interest. The area known as Todi Underground is a route of about 3 km that includes cisterns dating back to the pre-Roman era, aqueducts and cellars.
Among the many things to see in Todi there are also interesting testimonies of the Roman age, starting from the city walls. There are three walls surrounding the center. The more external ones, better preserved, are from the Middle Ages, but the other two, the more internal ones, which have come down to us only in fragments, date back to the Roman era. This also includes the so-called Etruscan walls which, despite the name, were in fact built after the years of the the Etruscan domination of the land, by the Romans indeed.
Todi's panoramic views
There is so much to see in Todi that you may feel the need to rush your visit so as not to miss anything, but a trip to this delightful village would not be complete if you did not take the time to admire one of its major attractions: the views on the green Umbrian hills, to be savored without haste, to rest the body and pamper the soul.
One of the most famous viewpoints is the Giardini di Oberdan, a small city park a stone's throw from the center, with benches and flower beds from which to admire both the valley below and the village's little houses. Adjacent to Piazza del Popolo is Piazza Garibaldi with its long terrace on the opposite side of the hill.
