MGS trip to Umbria
« on: August 24, 2017, 08:47:36 AM »
The MGS spring trip for 2018 is planned to be a one week tour of the Umbria and Lazio areas of Italy. It will take place from 13 to 20 May 2018 and will begin and end in Rome. The itinerary has not yet been finalised but it is proposed to begin in the northern part of Lazio, known as Tuscia. Heading up the western side of Umbria from Lago Bolsena to Lago Trasimeno the places to be visited will include medieval villages with their traditional regional cuisine, as well as their numerous high quality gardens. Many of the gardens on the schedule are privately owned and can only be viewed by appointment. For more information watch this space or contact me personally (my contact information is on the Cyprus Branch page of the MGS website).
Cyprus Branch Head. Gardens in a field 40 m above sea level with reasonably fertile clay soil.
