Guests will stay in Hotel Palazzo Brunamonti which is a very comfortable hotel situated in the centre of the beautiful town of Bevagna. Christopher Forsey had a day visit here and fell in love with Bevagna. It is at his request that we have included Bevagna in our programme, as there are so many wonderful painting sites. Bevagna is a beautiful unspoilt town with many picturesque little side streets, large squares, fountains - plenty of lovely things to paint and draw. The town has some interesting independent shops and lots of wine bars and restaurants. Bevagna was first an Etruscan town and then became a Roman municipium called Mevania. There are remains still existing from this time, including a temple, an Amphitheatre and a beautiful mosaic floor which was once a Roman bath. There will be one day painting in the town of Montefalco with lunch on the town square followed by a guided tour of the Gozzo frescos in the Museum which were much admired by Andrew Graham-Dixon when he visited Montefalco. There will also be a visit to nearby Assisi where Saint Francis' remains are entombed. The Duomo in Assisi consists of three floors, two of which are heavily frescoed by famous renaissance artists such as Giotti. The town of Assisi is full of wonderful shops, bars and restaurants. The evening will end with dinner in Ristorante San Francesco overlooking the floodlit Duomo. Guests will be collected from either Rome Fiumicino Airport or Perugia Airport. There will be painting/drawing tuition in the morning and late afternoon. In the evenings the group will get together for a three course a la carte dinner with wine in different restaurants in the town.
