The experience begins with the warm welcome of Bolsena, thanks to the 66 plane trees and 4 horse chestnuts that give body to the grandeur of the Via Monumentale del Lago. You will stroll lulled by the songs of the lake, then climb up to the village where alleys, ramps and stores are ready to show the face of a fascinating past.
The modern aquarium, with its sensational collection of freshwater fish fauna, is worth a visit, while the Rocca Monaldeschi della Cervara will offer a magical glimpse of the silvery mirror of the lake and the enchanted surrounding lands.
7 p.m. Departure for the secret mansion, specially selected for its ancient charm, with accommodation for dinner and overnight stay.
Celleno Roccalvecce Sant’Angelo di Roccalvecce
8:30 a.m. Breakfast at the residence and departure for Celleno.
The Borgo Fantasma®, with its subtle and delicate magic poses a thousand questions to the visitor, answering none. The mystery of the village is watched over by Castello Orsini, which made the famous abstract artist Enrico Castellani fall in love with it to such an extent that he chose it as his home for 40 years. Along these unexplored roads, the guide will lead visitors to discover the enchantment of the village, helping them to listen to the voices of the ghosts that still dwell among the stones.
On to Roccalvecce, to discover the mysterious Costaguti Castle: you will be greeted by portraits of the family’s ancestors, to be guided to the fairy-tale underground vaults filled with armor and tapestries that tell the story of the family line, and finally to find an ancient Roman cistern.
The final stop of the day is Sant’Angelo di Roccalvecce,the “Land of Fairy Tales”. Once upon a time, there was an agricultural village that, thanks to the visionary genius of Gianluca Chiovelli, with the Acas association, in just a few years has been transformed into an amazing open-air museum. The splendid murals are the works of only female artists: a storybook to browse through where the magic of colors blends with the fantasy of lines.
7:30 pm Return to the facility with dinner and overnight stay.
Castiglione in Teverina
The exploration concludes in Castiglione in Teverina, visiting the medieval historic center, a witness to the passage of time past, populated by numerous churches, silent guardians of precious works of art. The protagonist of the visit will be Muvis, the largest wine museum in Europe, thanks to its 2,000 square meters of exhibition space, and its “Cathedral,” an extraordinary wine cellar with gigantic wooden barrels 3.5 m in diameter.
End of services and departure.
