A lot of people during the summer. But also during the winter the landscape is beautiful, with their colours – in December prevails the red. In this season the Falls are wonderful. And it justifies the visit but there is more. The Christmas time is coming, then the New Year and the Epiphany and also a lot of events around the Falls. No limits to the fantasy: from the artistic cribs to the living ones along the medieval villages and in the routes of Nerina Valley. There is torchlight procession (very suggestive during the Epiphany and canoeing along the Nera river) the concerts, the exhibitions and so on. We will provide, in our website, programmes, dates, timetables, and photographic documentation.
In the centre of Terni will be “little events” in different parts of the city. The artists involve people. The dates will be the 13th , the 19th , the 20th and the 27th December.
The 8th December will be a torchlight procession in Miranda near Terni that switch on the Christmas star at the top of the mountain, close to the Upper Outlook of the Falls.
Then the artistic and living cribs around Marmore Falls. Many things to do and to chiose: that in Arrone (living crib) is between the most beautiful crib in Umbria, that in Cesi (artistic crib) on the lake. Then also Torreorsina (artistic crib) and Porzano (living crib) without forget the ancient mill-track that links Nicciano to Gabbio, now opened again for trekking. There you can find many artistic cribs.
At the end concerts and feats like “La Festa della Venuta” in Arrone, the 8th December. In according with the popular opinion the Holy House where the Virgin Mary received the Announciation by the angel has been moved from Palestina to Loreto – Marche . in 1294. The angel made the miracle. When they flow over the Nerina Valley, many fires have made in the countryside and the churches sounded to glorify the passing. The association in Arrone repeats the event with the fire and the sound of the bells during the night.
Bruschetta, new oil, wines and typical dishes. A very good idea!
