All the sessions on Umbria were amazing but this one was particularly touching as Kate thoughtfully described the damage and troubles with the earthquakes from a few years ago. Her concern was palpable.
A wonderful finale to this 5 part sojourn in Umbria, an endlessly fascinating and absorbing journey with Kate as our knowledgeable and friendly guide, who shows us so many of the extraordinary treasures of this ancient and atmospheric Region.

The Presentation of the Lecture 'A Harmony of Art and Nature: Spoleto, Norcia and the Sibillini Mountains with Kate Bolton-Porciatte: was Excellent and Informative. Her presentation being clear without over-detailing the various places visited. I did this exact same tour by car in 2014 before the Earthquake and my Heart stopped with the devastation visited on this unique spot in Italy; still Kate showed such empathy in conversation with some locals that she kept the tour on track. Her enthusiasm shone through and it was very refreshing to actually visit all the locations with her - I loved her 'invitation' to join her for a coffee !
I have participated in all 5 presentations about Umbria by Kate Bolton-Porciatti, and this one featuring Spoleto and the nearby area was truly excellent, like all the others. Kate carefully blends the history, art and architecture of each ancient town with traditional festivals, music and local cuisine and beverages. Each session has also included beautiful natural features and scenery from the region. Each presentation has included a mix of maps, photos, videos of Kate taking us on walks around the towns and countryside, along with her knowledgeable and enthusiastic commentary. In this session she also visited and talked with some local specialty shopkeepers. While much of the credit goes to Kate, it also goes to beautiful and historic Umbria!
