BEVAGNA, the nearest town
Bevagna is a Roman town built along the original Via Flaminia, it was originally called Mevania and today boasts a number of noteworthy Roman remains, including an extremely beautiful and well preserved mosaic floor in the ancient Roman baths.
Within the city walls there are some simply breathtaking views, a number of worthy historical sites and a lot of great places to eat.
Bevagna has been designated “one of the most beautiful cities in Italy” (“uno dei borghi piu belli d’Italia”), a designation awarded to only a handful of towns in Italy.
The town’s best restaurant is built into the remains of the ancient Roman amphitheatre. But built on top of the Roman city is a picturesque medieval city, which has been beautifully preserved and restored today.
In the surrounds there are rolling hills dotted with a number of picturesque vineyards, you are in the middle of the Montefalco wine district, in fact Bevagna is also famous for its DOC and DOCG wines like the lovely Sagrantino DOCG, that can be tasted during a memorable wine tour.
Bevagna offers many local food festivals and artistic events through all year, the most important one is the"Mercato delle Gaite".
If you are planning your vacation in June you'll be delighted to attend this vibrant event that brings Bevagna back to the past, offering glimpses of Medieval life and shops.
The locals will recall ancient trades, like: silk spinning, the glass art, the blacksmith, the rope-maker, the candle maker and so on...
During the Mercato delle Gaite, Bevagna is transformed into a medieval event. The oldest streets and alleyways are strewn with hay and decked out with colorful cloth, and various set-pieces - taverns, market stalls, theatres, potters, dyers, blacksmiths and so on - are constructed to create a sense of medieval verisimilitude. One can dine on authentic - and delicious - Umbrian cuisine, and enjoy an array of hearty local wines. The local people are "into it", and during festival time, many don colorful medieval garb and become enthusiastic characters in the extended "play" of the festival.
As you walk around the town during the festival, you will note that different quarters of the city are hung with different colored standards. Each of the neighborhoods compete aggressively with one another in the various medieval games, archery contests and other events that occur during the Gaite days. The last photos of the web album are about the Gaite Event.
