Hilltown Without a Hill

Bevagna is touted as a hilltown without the hill, but somehow it still managed to have ups and downs. Situated along the old Flaminia, an important ancient Roman trading route, this little medieval jewel has plenty of its own languid alleyways, stuffed with flower pots and fascinating architecture. Along the streets, we encountered a couple of surprises. You’ll have to wait until the following post to see them.

In the meantime, you can admire Bevagna along with us:
