Experiences

Todi is the ideal destination to visit with children. The city, climbing on a hill overlooking the entire Tiber Valley, is easily visited on foot with their children.

You can start the trip by leaving the car to the valley and go up the narrow streets that lead us to Piazza del Popolo. The old town of Todi is pedestrian, so it is easy and pleasant to go around with children and, above all, they feel free. Todi is a small cozy village. You can stop and talk to the elderly sitting on the benches eating ice cream and chatting with the shopkeepers.

Todi is the city of archers and if you’re lucky you can have the opportunity to live a great medieval tournament, with live challenges and workshops for children.

Even before entering the city we head to the Temple of Santa Maria della Consolazione, which is located outside the thirteenth-century walls of the city. The church is a majestic white and blue building, surrounded by meadows. Children can roll in the meadows and collect daisies.
Children often have fun observing the large church in the shape of a meringue!

Piazza del Popolo is the heart of Todi: here everything happened, here overlook the most important buildings of the small medieval village, including the Town Hall and the Cathedral. But the best thing to do with children is a tour of the cisterns, built by the Romans: they are located just below Piazza del Popolo and were used to collect rainwater.

Witchcraft, fantastic animals, precious objects preserved in ancient English castles: the traces of the fabulous stories of Harry Potter, the most famous magician in the world, you can also find here in Todi, among places, characters and legends to discover.
Even in the real world, that of the "Babbani", everyone has heard of Harry Potter at least once and even in Todi you can discover a bit of its history.

The first monothematic park of contemporary sculpture in Umbria is the Park of Beverly Pepper, the first of the artist in the world: his monumental sculptures are immersed in a naturalistic-urban path that winds through the medieval walls of the city, that connects the Temple of Santa Maria della Consolazione to the historic center. In the park of Beverly Pepper the position of each sculpture has been chosen with precision by the artist to marry his concept of relationship with the place and integration between work, context and landscape.
The sculptures are original, suitable to attract the attention and curiosity of children.

The Leo Wild Park educational farm is an oasis nestled in the Umbrian hills not far from Todi and was born from the dream of a child who loved animals and grew up made it a reason for life. In this magical and wild place you can live in close contact with nature and animals, so enjoying a typical day as a farmer. In the park you can get to know and admire various species of camelids, donkeys, horses, farmyard animals, various species of ducks, up to giraffes, zebras and flamingos
The educational trails that the "Leo wild park" offers are aimed at children, teenagers and adults and will give you the opportunity to appreciate the country life and escape from the chaos of the city.

Coming down from Piazza del Popolo is a work of art unique in the world: The Painted House.
In 1977, the internationally renowned Irish owner and artist Bryan O'Doherty, to fulfill his wife’s wish, began to paint the walls of the house transforming the small and simple dwelling into a work of art in the making, a real "work in progress". The rooms were decorated by the artist using soft and bright colors, telling us his state of mind in a funny way.

But even more suitable for children is to get out of the city to explore the countryside that unfolds to the horizon. Here safety, freedom, colors and scents will blend with the rides and games of your children.

At the end of all these rounds, you can offer children the Torta al testo, flat and low unleavened bread typical of Umbrian cuisine, based on flour, water, oil, salt and baking soda, the round shape that is cooked on a cast iron plate called "text" from which it takes its name.
Soft, tasty, delicious taste halfway between a piadina and a focaccia, can be eaten alone instead of bread or stuffed with cold cuts, cheese and vegetables!
