Torgiano MuseumTorgiano is one of Umbria’s wine towns and is carpeted with vineyards over the surrounding countryside . The town itself has only two main streets, Corso Emmanuele and Via Garibaldi and once was a small river port. Inhabited since the Roman era, it was rebuilt during the Middle Ages and later played a part in history as being one of the towns responsible in protecting Perugia as it sits just 15 km south.

How to get to Torgiano – From Perugia follow the directions on the E45 to Rome and exit at Torgiano. Buses also run from Piazza Partigiani, the main bus terminal in Perugia.

What To See – Torgiano now has a very interesting Museo del Vino (Wine Museum) housed in the 17th century Palazzo Baglioni as well as a newer Museo Dell’Olivo e Dell’Olio (Olive Oil Museum) built close by, both owned by the local Lungarotti family vineyard. The well known Cantina Lungarotti, probably most famous for it’s Rubesco Lungarotti, is open for wine tasting and tours by appointment.
