The most impressing events in Umbria are the Roman, Medieval and Renaissance renactments taking place in smaller towns, archaeological sites and hamlets nestled among its green hills.

Among the many feativals we may mention the Renaissance Giostra della Quintana in Foligno, the medieval Corsa all'Anello in Narni, the Giostra dell'Arme in San Gemini, the Mercato delle Gaite in Bevagna and the Ocriculum AD 168 in Otricoli.  

During these events the villages are decorated with flags, torches and coats of arms, while costumed carachters, handicrafts markets, inns serving local specialties and wines enliven the villages' tiny streets.
