NARNI and AMELIA
Across a landscape of uncontaminated nature, down the Via Amerina, one can reach Amelia, town of Roman origins. The enormous city walls made of polygonal shape rocks and built during the pre-Roman age to protect the town are among the oldest of Umbria. The town museum keeps the famous statute of the Germanico, which dates back to the first century AD.
Going southward, down the ancient Roman way, called Flaminia, through the Roman city Carsulae, we reach Narni, whose Latin name was inspiration for the “The Chronicles of Narnia” by C.L. Lewis. Its squares, alleys, palaces and churches like the San Giovenale Cathedral are emblematic examples of the Romanesque art and architecture in Umbria, but the real trasure of the town is the hidden underground area below the church of San Domenico and its secret halls used during the Inquisition.
