Full description
Tour the medieval cities of Montefalco and Bevagna on this full-day sightseeing tour of Umbria, and taste the deep red Sagrantino wines of the region; made from an Italian grape variety mainly found in the area. Hotel pick-ups are offered from Foligno, Perugia, Todi, Assisi, Spoleto and Gubbio. Drive to Montefalco to tour the Museo di San Francesco (Museum of St. Francis), a former Franciscan church with frescoes that tell the story of one of Italy’s most famous patron saints. Admire the 13th to14th-century Palazzo Comunale (Town Hall), and the former church of San Filippo Neri; now a town theater. Other historic churches include Sant' Agostino and Santa Illuminata. See handsome 16th-century residences in Santa Maria di Piazza. Continue to Bevagna, where ancient Roman monuments date back to the 1st century B.C. Just a few steps from the Forum, see the remains of a temple and check out the thermal baths which are still decorated with frescoes. Explore the medieval heart of the city, including the 13th-century Palazzo dei Consoli, and the 19th-century theater with decorations by Domenico Bruschi and a ceiling of dancing muses by Mariano Piervittori.
