Bettona, a natural balcony overlooking the Umbria Valley
Bettona rises on a “natural terrace” overlooking the Umbria Valley, near the confluence of the rivers Chiascio and Topino and at a short distance from the Tiber. From the top of its hill it is possible to see the towns of Assisi, Spello, Cannara Bevagna, Torgiano and Perugia.
