Our house is in very active medieval village. At the end of June there is a medieval food festival in the town that lasts ten days and spans two weekends. On the last weekend, there are plays, food and craft stalls and various animals are brought into the town. There are also silkworm displays near our house. In addition, there are a variety of food and dancing festivals on in the surrounding villages all summer long.
Bevagna was an important town in Roman times and there are still plenty of Roman ruins in evidence scattered amongst the medieval ediface. There is a roman amphitheater and the mosaic baths have been preserved and are on display.
It is a very lively village with plenty of bars and restaurants as well as all the amenities for daily live.
It is a short drive to other attractive towns such as Montefalco, Gualdo Cattaneo, Spello, Spoleto (which has a major arts festival in mid to late summer), and of course Assisi. Florence and Rome are approximatel an hour and a half away. Also it is easy to visit some of the popular towns of Tuscany such as Siena and Pienza.
In the autumn, the sagrantino wine grape vines change color and are the most delightful color.
Although there is plenty to do in and around the area, one of the great delights of the place is to sit at a bar in the piazza and watch daily life unfold.
