Bevagna: immersing yourself in history
In the heart of Umbria, an Italian region rich in history and traditions, lies the picturesque town of Bevagna. This fascinating place is famous for its deep historical roots and unique traditions, in particular the annual event known as 'Le Gaite'. Its origins date back to Roman times, when it was known as "Mevania." Remains of this ancient civilisation can still be seen in the town's streets, including the well-preserved Roman Theatre. In the Middle Ages, Bevagna was an important trading centre and, today, its medieval streets and picturesque squares transport visitors back in time.
