Experience the magic of Christmas in one of the most beautiful villages in Italy immersed in the atmosphere of festivals including tastings, cribs, guided tours and entertainment, in the village of Sagrantino: This year "Once upon a time ... at Christmas" will be back again in Montefalco.

A calendar full of initiatives is waiting for you from 8th December to 6th January: any examples?

Don't miss, on Saturday 8th December, "LUCE d'ARTE (Light of Art) - Appointment in the dark with Benozzo!", an evocative visiting experience that will reveal from time to time the scenes painted by Benozzo Gozzoli, illuminated by the light of the torches: a brand-new path to "shed light" on a unique masterpiece of the Italian Pictorial Renaissance.

On Sunday 6th January, it will be the turn of "Montefalco Trek", a guided itinerary to discover places, crafts and flavours of the past, among "hidden" medieval streets, historical buildings, churches, cloisters and courtyards, to admire art treasures and unique views of the city of Montefalco.

Back again will be the Living Crib, this year dedicated to the theme of "female genius".
In addition, the shops, restaurants, bars, wine bars and accommodation facilities are going to offer along the streets of the village shows of fire eaters, waders, jugglers, soap bubbles and many activities for families and children.
There will also be tastings of Montefalco DOC & Montefalco Sagrantino DOCG wines in combination with typical products.
