If you stay in Bevagna, you should hike up the hills to the southwest. You will be rewarded with beautiful paths through meadows and olive groves and wildflowers everywhere. I sensed incredible peace and harmony in these hills, reflecting the “slow” concepts of Slow Food and Cittàslow and the spirit of San Francesco. On the way uphill is a beautiful church, Madonna della Grazie (see screenshot google maps, “photo” 5). It should be open by now (restoration was ongoing in April 2008). Once on the hill, the views are breathtaking: the broad valley lies ahead and Monte Subasio in the back with the cities and villages Assisi, Spello, Foligno, Trevi, Campello sul Clitunno and Montefalco in the distance. It takes around 45 minutes uphill (to Il Poggio dei Pettirossi), but it is better and more rewarding to take time, a lot of time… slow :-). The landscape is too beautiful to race through it. In between you should look back from time to time – beautiful views for great photos are guaranteed.
