About Todi: Todi is a walking town its excellent restaurants and outdoor cafes. You do not need a car unless you plan site seeing. Todi is well situated to enjoy day trips to some of the most important Medieval and Renaissance towns in Italy – Arezzo, Siena, Rome, Florence, Orvieto, Assisi. The Rocca, a park for children as well as to view the extraordinary landscapes around Todi, is a short walk from the house

Description: This portion of apartment is included in a 3-story Roman and Medieval house which is set back from the street in a small nice courtyard, a five-minute walk to Todi’s main square, with its 12th century cathedral, town hall, clustering of outdoor cafes and frequent cultural events. All of Umbria stretches out below you from the windows. Owned by an Italian painter in early 20th century who decorated the ceilings of the majestic buildings in the square and then by a great Pulitzer-prize poet, the apartment still keeps the charm of the Roman and Medieval times: the nice large shared outdoor landing in front of the main door where you can sit and enjoy the view of a typical Medieval street and courtyard, the old arches, vaults and Roman well in the basement, the imposing century-old wooden beams and terracotta tiles of the ceilings and floors. People love it not only for its charm but also for its privacy while being so close to the square. The whole house was restored in 2006 by retrieving all original materials, such as terracotta tiles on the floors, massive wooden beams on the ceilings, stone walls, stone fireplace

FEATURES: from the street through a few steps you reach the yard of the house and a few terracotta steps lead up to the communal 7- sq m shared large outdoor landing/balcony and the common main door
