Typical Day


 - Cooking holidays and medieval festival june 2011
SMALL GROUP culinary tours OF THE MEDIEVAL UMBRIA
4 days cooking package holidays in Umbria during the medieval festival "the Mercato delle Gaite" from 22th to 27th june 2011

Welcome to Umbria! Bevagna is a small town in Umbria. It's a charming and picturesque walled town, that was an important place in ancient Roman days, situated along the Via Flaminia.
It's also home to a festival called Mercato Delle Gaite. For a few days each spring, the town is time-warped back to the middle ages. If you visit during this time, you'll find quite a different place than normal! The townspeople are all dressed in medieval garb, and the locals are very much into the spirit of the event. As you wander through the streets, you'll find all sorts of unusual activities underway, from falconry, to blacksmithing, to paper making. The town is historically divided into four quarters, "Le Gaite". These neighborhoods compete against each other in different events as part of the festival, and there's a real rivalry between them.

Reservations are on request for a minimum of two people.
