Love is definitely going to be in the air for anybody taking a trip to Umbria this year in the beautiful town of Citta della Pieve. From September 3rd to 6th the inaugural Festival of Aphrodisiac is going to be a glorious celebration of things that set the heart a flutter and tickle the soul.

For four days the town will come alive with dinners, creative workshops, exhibitions, film, dance shows, concerts and readings all with a central theme that explores the tantalising topic of aphrodisiac throughout the ages.

The workshops will focus on the foods of love such as saffron, truffles, chocolate and aphrodisiacal herbs in which experts will reveal their secrets and qualities.

Every evening the town’s central Piazza Gramsci will be turned into an open air cinema and will show such classics as Chocolat by Lasse Hallstrom, Eat Drink Man Woman by Ang Lee, Born Romantic by David Kane and Babette’s Feast by Gabriel Axel.

For those wanting to take a journey through a vast array of exhilarating flavours, sensuous scents and amorous aromas the centre of Citta della Pieve will play host to a bazaar featuring a huge mix of aphrodisiacal products.

The rich diversity of things to see and do at this wonderful festival is guaranteed to make it a truly memorable occasion and well worth the effort to get here. Cottages to Castles can provide high quality holiday villas in Umbria for anyone planning on visiting this unique event.
