Special Markets in Umbria
Here are some special markets in Umbria, the best known. These often take place all day.
Palazzo della Prefettura, in summer, Rocca Paolina, in winter, - last weekend of the month. The main attraction here are ceramics, from the most precious to the most utilitarian, all colourfully decorated with patterns in use for centuries. Antique costume jewellery is another highlight.
Piazza Mazzini, Sunday before the 21st in March, June, September and December. In case you didn't figure out the puzzle, this market takes place at the beginning of each of the four seasons, to which it is dedicated. The fifty stands sell small inexpensive items, mostly, against the backdrop of the 14th-century church of Santa Croce.
Castiglione del Lago
Piazza Gramsci, third Saturday of the month, April to September. Another great place to find the wonderful local ceramics, along with antique archery equipment. The lovely little town overlooks Lake Trasimeno.
