UMBRIA IN BLOOM. JUNE 25th-26th, 2016

Discovering Umbria between gardens and amazing wild blossomings: Assisi, Spello and Castelluccio

June 25th, Assisi and Spello

In June, you can enjoy the spectacular blossoming of lavender fields next to Assisi. We will therefore join the “Lavender Festival”, visiting the Lavandeto, a specialized nursery where you can appreciate different types of lavender and other aromatic plants, besides visiting a market selling of kind of products based on lavender. All the participants will receive a lavender drink and a souvenir.

In the late afternoon, you will visit the evocative Bosco di San Francesco in Assisi, where the gardener of the Bosco will introduce the participants to the several types of plants cultivated in the garden and the spontaneous ones in the woods. The meeting point will be at the Complesso di Santa Croce, where you can also visit the church and the exhibition showing the renovation of the area carried out by FAI (Fondo Ambiente Italiano, non-profit trust dedicated to the environment).

June 26th, Castelluccio di Norcia

An entire day dedicated to admiring and photographing Castelluccio di Norcia in bloom, one of the most spectacular and colorful area in Italy. The plateau offers a great variety of colorful flower, from poppies to bluebottles and lentil flowers.

In Italian, there is a term for specialty butcher shop that is “norcineria”, which comes from the name Norcia.
