Here are 8 reasons why you should include Todi in your Travel Wishlist!

1. To breathe its history
The history of Todi sinks the roots in a distant past: already to the time of the Etruscans between the VIII and VII century a.C. was founded the town from the Umbrians, calling it "Tutere", that is border town.
Its historical center has remained intact and allows visitors to appreciate many palaces and churches, all protected by a wall erected in 1244, where today the ramparts still stand and the doors that allowed the entrance to the city are visible. During the Middle Ages Tuder was a free commune and then Lordship under the Acts, before becoming part of the Church State.
The villages created by the Arts and Crafts Corporations, headed by the Priors, were surrounded by walls about 4 km long. The current Piazza del Popolo with the Palazzo del Popolo (1213), the Palazzo del Capitano (1292) and the Palazzo dei Priori also dates back to this period.
After a dark period, with the advent of Bishop Angelo Cesi there was the rebirth of Todi.
It was the period of the construction of the Temple of the Crucifix and the Temple of Santa Maria della Consolazione whose project is attributed to Donato Bramante.

2. To know Jacopone
