La Dolce Villa

SPRING

Northern Umbria must surely be at its most inspiring in the Spring time, as blossom turns to leaf and the countryside becomes luxuriantly green. Wild flowers bloom in profusion and the fields are filled with poppies, coating the hills in a patchwork of vermilion.

Below is a list of typical events held in the area during Spring time. Religous Festival dates will vary slightly each year. Exhibitions and events are varied and current information will be found at the time of your visit.
