Very helpful if you asked them to explain their actions. When: Saturday night while the night we did give unto to be back at the hotel we came across various greenhouses in the middle of the road with the boys and girls who knelt with enviable patience were preparing to give shape to their Velvet carpet. AFTER: arise at 5:30 we went around. Most of them had almost finished the whole thing and I have to say that watching these open-air works deserves to secure the early rising. An emotion that I recommend to try anyoneshow original

That day we decided to go in Spello! Ever day was luckier. We parked the car at the end of the village at no expense to stop and this is already a lot, since it was around lunch time we took advantage, given free places, to eat something characteristic of Umbria at the beginning of the great port from where it starts "up" for visiting the country. Never show was so charming, a very long climb with houses all full of flowers hanging from balconies and Windows gave the impression of being in a huge botanical garden full of flowers of all kinds, with side streets so covered with colors that cannot even noticed the kind of House that I was under. And then the Collegiate Church of Santa Maria Maggiore, with paintings by Pinturicchio where are depicted, with frescoes, the stories of Mary and the childhood of Jesus. MAGNIFICENT VISION! We plan to return to this beautiful village in order not to lose the most representative event of Spello Infiorata del Corpus Domini, held between May and June. Every year the streets of the medieval village are transformed into a wonderful, spectacular, an immense carpet of flowers that exceeds 1.5 km. The streets are decorated with paintings of sacred art compounds with flower petals, a unique event for religious tourism that has transformed Spello in the "capital of flowers". So we think we are. Seeing is believing. Not only the floral display but being from the Roman era there are ruins and walls that relate to the fortification of the city in which there are three ports: the Via Roma, the city gate and, on the market square the grandiose Porta Consolare, 1st cent. a. Christ. The third gate called Porta Venere, features two nice towers dodecagonal, le Torri di Properzio. So we filled the eyes of things really nice!!show original
