Fascination of the the Middle Ages: paper and candles, life, food and clothes like in the Middle Ages.
BEVAGNA, what a great experience for both adults and children!!!
This small town, once a key Roman city, still bears witness to the splendour of its Roman past and this tour will show you how in the Middle Ages people recycled the old Roman structures of their splendid theatre and used them for their new needs. Step in and you'll understand what it means to be surrounded by 2000 years of history. Visit the marvellous romanesque churches where they used to pray, see how the medieval spirituality as well as a new economic boom influenced that society. Our visit to a medieval paper mill will show you how they could produce a sheet of paper from old clothes, and do not miss the chance of making your own piece. In a medieval workshop you'll learn how they made candles. There will also be time to see how they lived and what they used to eat and wear. ( HALF DAY 3 HOURS)

Marco was pleasant, helpful and informative. We learnt much more having him as a guide than just looking at the town on our own. Bevagna was an interesting town and the re-creations of the Medieval world made it come to life. I would recommend this tour for adults and for older children.
