Within short reach from Cascia you can easily find many interesting places to visit while looking for art, culture and history.
Norcia is certainly one of the first stops, and also among the closest to Cascia. The city of San Benedetto, despite suffering the effects of the 2016 earthquake, remains an important place to visit for its importance and culture.
Vallo di Nera can be reached by descending to the southern part of the Valnerina and is a small village perched on a hill. Vallo di Nera ranks among the most beautiful villages in Italy.
Going further down you will find Scheggino, yet another small village located near the Nera river. In addition to its extraordinary alleys and views, in Scheggino you can visit the Church of San Nicola where are frescoes inspired by the style of Spagna, a pupil of Perugino.
About 15 minutes drive from Scheggino opens the entire valley of Spoleto with the city of the Festival that appears impressive. In Spoleto you can visit the Rocca Albornoziana, the Ponte delle Torri, the beautiful Piazza del Duomo and, from above, you can see in the distance even Assisi and Mt. Subasio.
From here it is very easy to reach points of interest and villages famous for their food and wine, such as Bevagna and Montefalco, but also Assisi itself and a few kilometers before it, the magnificent Spello.
This wide territory, so diverse and assorted, is famous worldwide for its endless gastronomic specialties, which find here a favorable environment and people who devote themselves to their care. One could list, by example, the Black Truffle of Norcia, the pure saffron of Cascia, the spelt PDO of Monteleone, the Castelluccio lentils, the PGI ham, the Sagrantino of Montefalco, and many others.
All these products are the basis for the cuisine of our restaurants inside the hotel: Il Roseto e L’Alveare.
