Fratta Todina is a small village in the Tiber valley of central Umbria, about 13 km north of Todi and 7 km south of Marsciano.

There is not much to it, although some of the walls are medieval, as is a small building known as the Bishop's Palace (whether rightly or not, I can't yet say). It is served by a train stop on the private FCU railroad from Terni to Perugia, about 2 km SE of the town itself.

A little website will appear here eventually, since I've been to Fratta and walked the area a few times. In the meanwhile, you might find it useful to read my rather scant diary entries for Oct. 1 and Oct. 20, 1994 and Mar. 13, 2004. For further and better information, you should also see the websites linked in the navigation bar at the bottom of this page.


Most of the comuni in Umbria include in their territories some smaller towns and hamlets, of a few hundred inhabitants if that, with a certain administrative identity of their own: as elsewhere in Italy, these are referred to as the frazioni of the comune (singular: frazione, literally a "fraction"). Fratta Todina has only two, and I haven't been to either of them, so any links will be offsite:
