The path of the ancient Umbrians and the Via Flaminia: along the Via Flaminia among nature, art, culture with lunch
Easy hike departing from the center of the town of Sigillo, along a stretch of the historic Via Flaminia, particularly rich in extraordinary historical and artistic finds. The Flaminian consular road, commissioned by Consul Caius Flaminius in 220 B.C. in this part preserves two wonderful bridges from the Augustan period, in good condition, which can still be visited today. Rising on the ancient Roman road on the outskirts of Sigillo is the 15th-century Church of Sant’Anna al Cimitero, which preserves a series of frescoes by the painter Matteo da Gualdo; a short distance away, we can admire even more works by the Umbrian painter in the small Romanesque-style church of Santa Maria Assunta at Villa Scirca.
The valley floor route passes through typical Umbrian countryside landscapes with beautiful farmhouses, cultivations of olive trees, cereals and legumes; here we can refresh ourselves with good water from some local springs and later visit a traditional cheese factory, which produces pecorino aged in the pit and in other ways, being able to taste and buy these goodies, gastronomic excellence of Monte Cucco Park. Lunch at a local restaurant.
