A while back I created a Group on Facebook called
This is an English speaking Group for people who share my passion for beautiful Atina and the Val di Comino and who have family roots firmly planted in this beautiful little town in Frosinone, Italy. We now have over 275 members.
Brigida and I are currently organising a “Get Together” in Atina over the weekend of the 26th / 27th / 28th September 2014.
Anyone with family connections with Atina is very welcome to take part.
For anyone who would might like to stay a few extra days – the Feast of Atina’s patron saint, San Marco, is held on 1 October.
Here are some ideas that Brigida and I have come up with
for the Get Together ….
The Friday Evening
Meet and Greet – to meet up with We Love Atina members of the group at a Bar in Atina. It would be great if we could find somewhere with a side room where we could all get to know each other, chat, show photos etc etc. and generally use as a base.
All meet for drinks at a bar and on to Restaurant for dinner.
Attend Mass at the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta.
Some other ideas ……
A Guided Tour around Atina, discovering the different districts, houses and palaces, learning about the history of the town.
A Visit to the local Museum and Library.
A Visit to the local Graveyard.
A Visit to the ruins of the old Paper Factory
A Wine Tasting at a local Vineyard and Tasting of local delicacies
If people want to stay on for a few days they could also …….
See the Monday morning Market held in Atina
For anyone who would might like to stay on for a few extra days – the Feast of Atina’s patron saint, San Marco, is held on 1 October.
Well these are a few ideas, perhaps you can come up
with some new or better ones.
Please feel free to get in touch if you would like
to join We Love Atina !!! on Facebook
and / or if you would like to attend this event in Atina.
