Daily Italian Doses | La Corsa dei Ceri

Another of my favorite festivals is La Corsa dei Ceri in Gubbio.  Three candles are raced up through the steep village during this event.

Candles?  No big deal, anyone could do that.  Except that these each weigh 700 lbs.  Click HERE to read in more detail about the day at Anne’s Italy Blog.

Another wonderful blogger brought her post to my attention.  For an additional article click HERE at Bagni di Lucca and Beyond.  Tons of brilliant photos!!



I’m obsessed with feedback, let me know what you think.

Love it??  Pass it on!

    We were in Gubbio this year for the Race of the Candles. It was one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. I did a pretty comprehensive post called The wierd and wonderful race of the candles on May 17.
