Guided trekking excursion in the Valnerina: Scheggino, Sant'Anatolia and Vallo di Nera with lunch in a restaurant
The excursion will begin in the morning, together with our experienced hiking guide, we will travel to the heart of the Valnerina, in the southeastern part of Umbria.
Together with him we will go on a beautiful and rewarding trekking excursion surrounded by the beautiful nature of the green heart of Italy. We will begin our journey from the town of Scheggino, a delightful village of medieval origins located in a mountainous area crossed by the waters of the Nera River. The village retains remnants of walls and a semi-destroyed tower dating back to the 12th century, a defensive outpost that has been chipped several times. The territory of Scheggino offers a landscape of great charm and beauty: the splendid Valcasana springs that flow a short distance from the town are an example of the spectacle that nature offers in this area.
When we reach Scheggino, we will stop in its historic center to visit its monuments: the Church of St. Nicholas, from the medieval period that preserves frescoes inspired by the forms of Giovanni di Pietro, and the 12th-century Church of Santa Felicita, which preserves its original structure. Another boast of Scheggino is the culinary delights, especially the real river trout and the prized black truffle.
We continue our journey to discover Umbria’s hidden treasures until we reach Sant’Anatolia di Narco, a town located near the Nera River that, although inhabited since ancient times, owes its current appearance to the late medieval period. The castle that dominates the town dates back to the second half of the 11th century while the walls were built two centuries later.
We will stop in the town center to visit the Church of St. Anatolia, a parish church with 14th-century frescoes, the small Renaissance-style church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, theAbbey of St. Felice and Mauro, the 13th-century Convent of Santa Croce, and the Hemp Museum, which is housed in the 16th-century town hall.
Lunch at local restaurant with drinks included.
After lunch, we head to the last village on our interesting trekking route-Vallo di Nera. The charming village of Vallo di Nera is situated in a particularly charming region of the Valnerina, where a narrowing of the valley generates small basins, and sinuous, narrow valleys furrowed by the crystal-clear waters of the Nera River and its tributary Vigi. Vallo di Nera is a town-monument and its stone houses are surrounded by walls and towers, and it retains its medieval urban structure intact, with narrow alleys topped by arches. The town partly preserves Romanesque, religious and civil buildings from the early Middle Ages, of which the Church of the Santissima Annunziata dell’Eremita is a notable example. Due to its valuable historical and scenic features, this wonderful village is considered one of the “Most Beautiful Villages in Italy.”
Vallo di Nera also boasts several awards, including Bee Friendly Municipality and Truffle City. Walk through the charming alleys of this village and return to the hotel in the afternoon.
