The Province of Perugia hosts events, such as Eurochocolate where chocolate, in all its varied forms is the rightful protagonist, and Umbria Jazz, the jazz music festival that every year gathers together the most important artists of the jazz world. In Spoleto, the Festival dei due Mondi immerses spectators in the noble arts of music, dance, theatre, and literature against the wonderful scenery the town has to offer. Amongst the festivals and popular traditions particularly worthy of attention are: the Festival of the Ceri in Gubbio, where the protagonists are three heavy candles carried in procession to the Basilica of San Ubaldo; and the Cross-Bow Palio held in Gubbio, a contest between the Gubbio crossbowmen and their Tuscan counterparts from Sansepolcro. The Christmas tree which is realised in Gubbio is certainly the largest in the world and it is listed in the Guinness Book of Records. The tree is realised by using the entire southern face of Mount Ingino, the mountain that dominates Gubbio, where 450 coloured lights are lain on the mountain side, powered by several kilometres of electric cables. A life-size nativity scene is also realised at the base of the mount in order to equal the grandeur of the tree.
A reality almost clinging to the rocks of Mount Ingino, from which walls you can see breathtaking views and landscapes. Worth a visit center of the Roman theater, the church of San Francesco, located where a time was the warehouse of Spadalonga, or the building of Consuls or coeval Palazzo del Podestà.
