    A lesser known hill town which is yet packed with curious artefacts. Narni Sotterranea is home to bizarre medieval torture instruments, while the town itself allegedly inspired C.S. Lewis' Narnia tales (although he never visited). In April/May check out the Corsa all'Anello, a yearly medieval festival which sees the town come alive with costumes, markets, jousting and taverns.

    You know how everyone wants to find the perfect Italian hill town that hasn't yet been discovered? That's Narni. When I first visited in 2003, the tourist office didn't even have a map for me (they photocopied one from their desk). If you happen to be anywhere near Umbria in April, don't miss the Corsa all'Anello, the Race for the Ring. This three-week festival is filled with costumes, traditional crafts, games, neighborhood alliances and feasts to end all feasts. The rest of the year, go on a weekend when the Narni Sottaraneo is open to check out what it was like to live in an Inquisition prison (hint: not fun).

    Lovely medieval town located in the geographical center of italy. it still has the medieval towers around the city. It's like a ;little precious jewel in the middle of a typical Umbrian green hill. It's really worth seeing!
