Todi is a town and comune (municipality) of the province of Perugia (region of Umbria) in central Italy. It is perched on a tall two-crested hill overlooking the east bank of the river Tiber, commanding distant views in every direction.
In the 1990s, Richard S. Levine, a professor of architecture at the University of Kentucky, chose Todi as the model sustainable city, because of its scale and its ability to reinvent itself over time. After that, the Italian press reported on Todi as the world’s most livable city

Almost all Todi’s main medieval monuments — the co-cathedral church (Duomo), the Palazzo del Capitano, the Palazzo del Priore and the Palazzo del Popolo — front on the main square (Piazza del Popolo) on the lower breast of the hill: the piazza is often used as a movie set. The whole landscape is sited over some huge ancient Roman cisterns, with more than 500 pits, which remained in use until 1925.

VISITING THE MARIA CONSOLAZIONE CHURCH AT NIGHT
Come and appreciate the beauty of Santa Maria della Consolazione at night. This church is one of the best examples of perfectly designed churches for this part of Italy.
You will be amazed at its interior with a large collection of impressive statues and paintings. Musical performances are known to take place there. Walking around the streets is worth your time and watching the changing reflections from the sun on the exterior is a special treat. Alluring views of the dome from the gardens make it splendid to see. There are also the statues of the apostles inside and a mosaic above the altar.
