Hello my friends!
Every year when the school ends childrens and parents are going on a one day trip. This time the schedule was to visit the Narni Fortress and the Marmore Falls, both places in Umbria, Italy.
Starting the early morning we stop first to discover the pleasant surprise, a tour of the medieval fortress, where the kids played the game of the five senses: touch, sight, hearing, smell and taste. The rooms of the fortress are 14: costume room, weapons room, musical instruments room, banquet room and others where you can meet noble ladies and noble knights. In the fortress gardens you can play games like archery and other entertaining challenges. From the observation deck you can admire the city of Narni and the plain area.
