Umbria is one of the most central regions of Italy. Its capital is Perugia. The region consists of two provinces, Perugia (the northern part) and Terni (the south). Outside the capital, the most famous cities are Assisi, the birthplace of St. Francis, and Orvieto. Umbria is the only region in the country that does not border on either another country or the coast.
