Subject: Travel in Umbria
Hello Ziners,

I am new to the group. I have already enjoyed reading many of the past posts especially Don & Linda's travelogues about Umbria.

I am travelling with my husband to Umbria this May. We plan on staying in either Perugia or Assisi and use trains and buses to visit many of the hilltop towns, i.e. Todi, Spoleto, Deruta, etc.

We love to utilize public transportation as much as possible when it's convenient. Does anyone know what it's like in this part of Umbria with regards to the ease of transportation? Also we would like to visit Gubbio and see the Palio della Palestra which I believe is on May 29 this year.

Does anyone have any experiences with this event and the crowds that might occur?

Thank you, Diana Calhoun Redondo Beach, CA
