Aerial Photos Of Preggio
I took these photos of Preggio in the Niccone Valley last autumn but haven’t got around to posting them on the blog until now. Preggio is at over 600 metres altitude and has outstanding views over the surrounding countryside and Lake Trasimeno. It’s nice to visit for a quick wander or, if you are here in the summer there is a Classical Music Festival and in the autumn, Preggio Chestnut Festival
Chestnuts & The Common Cold!
At higher altitudes in the Niccone Valley the chestnut tree tends to dominate the forests. I have heard that the people of Preggio carry an edible chestnut in their pockets during the winter to ward off colds.
Trattoria La Castagna
There is a family run trattoria in Preggio, unsurprising it’s called La Castagna (The Chestnut)!
