Cascia
This tour includes a visit of the most iconic and historical locations in Italy. Cascia is not only associated with the famous Saint, Holy Rita from Cascia, but it was the home of the Roman settlement of Carsulae, destroyed in the 1st century BC by an earthquake. In the middle ages, it was annihilated by the Byzantines and the Lombards, and was later an estate of land held on condition of feudal service for the Trinci family. It was occupied by papal troops in the 15th century, and thenceforth, it was a papal town until the unification of Italy in 1860.
