The stone table where the lion Aslan? Now it is clear: it is the Roman altar in the woods around Narni. The lake of the silver water? But certainly, it is in Stifone, a hamlet in the municipality of Narni where the Nera river becomes blue tank to the microorganism located on the river bed. And then the same lion represented on the town hall, so the analogy between the name of one of the protagonists - Lucy – and the body of the blessed Lucia preserved in the cathedral.
If you have doubts, now you think that Narnia and “the chronicles of Narnia” – the saga of the writer Clive Staples Lewis became a film – is the Umbrian town located few minutes from the Marmore Falls.
Important thing is to describe the opportunity offered by the "165M Travel" Agency in collaboration with the Ditt (Tourist Integrated District of Terni) engaged for the promotion of the territory. It is of a week-end with discounts ticket for families, with overnight stay in hotel or in farm holidays in this beautiful part of Umbria. There is the possibility to choice among the following dates: the weekend 30th–31st July, weekend 27th–28th August, weekend 24th–25th September, weekend 29th–30th October.
In the professional point of view, it has been called “package tour”, but in this case it is “forbidden”. You can use a similar term to describe the arriving in the archaeological site of Carsulae, the ancient Roman town near San Gemini, not far from the Falls?
it can call in this way the visiting to the archaeological area together with the Romana, the snail that leads children in the most suggestive places, where the imperial town was the ancient Via Flaminia?
Even less we can describe in the commercial point of view the emotions linkef to the Marmore Falls, the second stop of the week-end. The children find out the beauties of the naturalistic area, unique in the world, following the Gnefro, the mythic elf (an operator dressed-up) protagonist together with the shepherd Velino and the nymph Nera of the legend of the Marmore Falls. There is the Falling of waters, there are the flower witnesses, the canyon, le rapids...
At the end the epilogue in Narni, where Saunday morning will bea n animated visit in the places of “the chronicles of Narnia”, and do also the visiting to Narni underground discovered 30 years ago thanks to a group of young people. After a dark corridor, under the ruins o fan ancient cloister, you cn see a mysterious world forgot for centuries. The inquisition cells with the graffiti made by the prisoners on the wall, a rupestral Church dated back to the XII secolo, a Roman cistern and more.
But the adults? For the man advice: forget the ages and come back to the eyes of the children. The experience will be exciting.
