Benevento


Known as the "city of the witches", and for a renowed liquor,Strega, the town of Benevento is one of the major centres of the Sannio area. The city is surrounded by a very beautiful mountain landscape.
According to the legend, the town was founded by the Greek Diomedes after the destruction of the famous town of Troy.
The first documented sources that we possess date back to the fifth century BC, when the Samnite populations living in the Sannio area, were forced to defend their territories against the Romans.
When the Romans finally managed to conquer the Sannio area, they recognized how straegic the town of Benevento was and they built  monuments like the Arch of Trajan, along the Appia street, the Theatre and the Leproso Bridge which are still visible today.
During the Middle Ages, Benevento was conquered by different populations from the north and for a long time was dominated by the Longobards and later by the Vatican so that the city of Benevento is also well known for beautiful buildings dating back to those times.
We will visit the splendid 12th century Cathedral, with its remarkable bell tower.

We will visit the Roman Theatre, still well preserved and used during the summer for various theatrical performances. Then we will see the amazing Santa Sofia church and finally the Sannio Museum, where lot of artifacts and prehistoric materials are conserved.
