There are several noteworthy relics of this period such as the statue of Germanicus in Amelia's museum, the ancient Roman water supply cisterns, the old Roman road uncovered in the heart of the town, the beautiful municipal theatre. From here, important towns such as Todi, Orvieto, Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio, in all their artistic splendour, are easily reachable.

To relax amid the sounds of nature, surrounded by ancient olive groves, woods of oak, to walk taking in the peace and tranquillity, resting not only the body but the mind as well. The peace and quiet enhance the depth of the rolling countryside in its constant variations of colour as the daylight hours and the seasons go by.
