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
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.
