Introducing Todi, Umbria

Introducing Roccafiore Wine Resort & Spa in Todi, Umbria

According to the legend, said to have been recorded around 1330 BC by a mythological Quirinus Colonus, Todi was built by Hercules, who here killed Cacus, and gave the city the name of Eclis.

Historical Todi was founded by the ancient Italic people of the Umbri, in the 8th-7th century BC, with the name of Tutere.[4][5] The name means "border", the city being located on the frontier with the Etruscan dominions. It probably was still under the latter's influence when it was conquered by the Romans in 217 BC. According to Silius Italicus, it had a double line of walls that stopped Hannibal himself after his victory at Lake Trasimeno. In most Latin texts, the name of the town took the form Tuder.

Today, Todi is home to some of Italy's most famous attractions: the Palazzo del Priori (city hall), Basilica di San Fortunato, Ponte delle Torri (a Roman aqueduct) and much more. Todi is also a great place for shopping and dining while enjoying the comforts of Roccafiore.
