Among the beautiful valleys and hills of Umbria, there is a 40 km strip of land over 40 km long that FAO — United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization
— has recognized as an agricultural heritage of global relevance. This is the Olive Groves of the Slopes between Assisi and Spoleto: nine thousand hectares of land along the Spoletan Valley at the foot of the Apennines Mountains Chain. Over here, one of the most important elements of the local culture and agriculture reigns supreme. A million and a half of olive trees
decorate and perfume this area from centuries, and day after day it keep leaving open-mouthed who admires and crosses it.
Among the branches of these magnificent and ancient inhabitants of the ground there are more than four thousand companies, almost all family-run, and churches, abbeys, castles, and villas. All of them are part of some of the most beautiful towns you can find in Umbria: Assisi, Spello, Foligno, Trevi, Campello sul Clitunno, Spoleto.
