  • An Incomparable Italian Vacation

    An Incomparable Italian Vacation

    Resting atop a storefront in the bustling town of Marsciano is Casa Capriccio ("flight of fancy" in Italian): a classic 19th-century townhouse fit for the traveler seeking a genuine experience of everyday Italian life. With two balconies overlooking the main square, the three stories of Casa Capriccio offer a comfortable space to relax after strolling through the town’s shops, cafes, and restaurants.  This area of the Tiber River valley is known for its sweeping views:  walled hilltop towns, green rolling hills decorated with grapevines and olive groves, fields of poppies in spring, sunflowers in midsummer, blazing colors in autumn. From the top floor of this cozy townhouse, you look across the main square and over the rooftops to a hilltop castle in the far distance.  Travel by car and you're in the beautiful Lake Trasimeno district with each coast a short two hours away. A small town in central Umbria, Marsciano offers old world charm with contemporary attractions. It’s perfect for a couple or small family to enjoy a rustic summer getaway amidst a vibrant and active glimpse of Italy.Read More »
