Long Weekend of June 2nd in Umbria

After the Long Weekend of April 25th and May 1st the Long Weekend of June 2nd in Umbria concludes the cycle of the spring breaks, and served as prelude to the summer holidays.

Usually at this time of the closeness of summer makes itself felt conceding warm temperatures and sunny days that are ideal for those who want to spend a few days away from home. Umbria, in this period is colored bright tones of wildflower meadows that in some areas of the region have become real events that attract thousands of onlookers and fans, such as the flowering of Castelluccio di Norcia.

For lovers of outdoor activities in this period you can enjoy a range of outdoor sports ranging from water sports such as rafting or canyoning, to activities such as trekking and climbing.

For those who love the peace and want to spend some time with the family, the natural parks of the region are the ideal place to spend quiet time in contact with nature and with wild animals that can be seen in their natural habitat.

But June is also the time where you can enjoy the Umbrian culinary tradition on open air (it isn't still too hot for lovers of picnics) choosing from a trip out of town for a barbecue with the whole family or stopping in one of the many traditional festivals that take place in this period.
