Foligno is one of the few towns in Umbria in Italy which isn't built on top of a hill. One of the city's main attractions is the annual Giostra della Quintana festival, during which medieval tournaments are enacted. It's held in June and September and during this festival the restaurants serve typical medieval dishes.
The city has almost 60,000 inhabitants.
Foligno is located along the Topino River which rises in the Apennines and flows into the plains nearby the city. Although the city itself lies on a plain, Foligno is surrounded by hills. The city lies in a seismological active area: Foligno was struck by heavy earthquakes in 1832 and 1997.
Foligno's inhabitants are known as hardworking people, who aren't taken aback by things that cannot be avoided, like an earthquake. The main sources of income are trading and processing of agricultural produce from the surroundings. Foligno is also the official supplier of hemp to the Vatican. The hemp is for example used to make ropes for the church bells.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?
To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver.
