Todi in ItalyTodi has gained a reputation as a tourist-cultural center of international renown, thanks to the serene beauty of its countryside and its perfectly intact medieval architecture. The entire town is built on an incline, adapting itself to the shape of the hill which was first settled in the Umbrian-Etruscan period. It has a triangle shape, around which rise the ancient city walls. In the center, the Piazza del Popolo, with its public buildings and the Duomo, is one of the most perfectly designed medieval squares to be found anywhere. The vivacious artistic and cultural life reaches a climax during the Todi Festival, which attracts visitors from all over the world.
