May is one of the best times to visit Umbria. Major historic festivals and similar events take place across the region this month.
The medieval towns of Assisi and Gubbio host the two arguably most important historic festivals. Assisi, the “Calendimaggio” the first week of May, and Gubbio, the “Corsa dei Ceri” (Ceri race) on May 15.
Below a video of the 2007 edition “Corsa dei Ceri”.
