Hey RenFest Fans

May 17, 2016

If you are a fan of the renaissance themed festivals like RenFest, Scarborough Faire, Sherwood Forrest Faire, then how would you like to add a little more realism to your next adventure:

This takes place in a little town in Italy: Every year, a procession of 300 or more people wearing wonderful medieval costumes as well as many riders on their horses parade through Cortona’s historic center. The competition known as the Giostra dell’Archidado commemorates the wedding of Francesco Casali, Lord of Cortona, and his noblewoman bride Antonia Salimbeni of Siena, which took place in 1397. The crossbowmen from Cortona’s five quarters, “quintieri”, compete for a golden arrow. The contest is held in Piazza Signorelli. This feast is held in Cortona, a town in the province of Arezzo (southeast of Florence) and takes place in June.

I have all the travel information available and can assist any size of group. Contact me at: labdaddyleisuretravel@gmail.com.
