Description

The story of Villa Metella begins in 1997 when the owners bought the property fascinated by its character and charm. A fantastic job has been made refreshing the facade and in creating ad hoc decorations for the interior spaces of the villa. Modern and ancient. The facade of the villa is unique of its kind in the area: it was embellished with frescoes inspired by the maison à colombages, presumably during the era of French troops in the area. The history of Villa Metella instead has much more ancient roots as this pleasant land was the scene of a bitter battle of the Second Punic War. The most ancient historical sources of the battle of Trasimeno and over the centuries various theories have tried to identify the passages and actual battlefields of this historical clash. In short, the area is located along the route of an important road artery that was built by the Romans. Thematic walking and trekking routes have been created that retrace the paths of the battle of Trasimeno or the ancient paved path from the Roman Era that connects to Mount Sant'Egidio.
