      It is like going back to the Middle Ages. The whole town turns back to the period of 1250 – 1350. It is a contest between the quarters (Gaite) of the city. Every inhabitant -young and old – is dressed in Medieval clothes, the food you can try is prepared according to medieval recipes and all the old crafts are represented… A beautiful experience!

    This must have been fantastic! When I travelled in Italy, I kept imagining back in history and I would have loved a festival like this to make history come alive.

      It is an annual festival in Bevagna, Mercato delle Gaite. Next year I will return, it is an event not to be missed in Umbria. So special. It is like going back to the Middle Ages!
