We took to the van on Sunday to drive south from our Villa on the edge of Tuscany’s Cortona toward Rome and into Umbria. Talk about a hill town, Orvieto is on a very high bluff made of Tufa stone….impenetrable, certainly from one side. Popes used to visit in the 1200’s and they decided to build a very fancy cathedral to honor such a presence. So, it’s a “must-see” kind of site.
Vast spaces inside…with those same stripes we saw in southern Spain.
Later, we found a restaurant called “Zeppelin” for lunch. It had been recommended by some good friends of Tim & Cindy’s who used owner/Chef Lorenzo to prepare a fiftieth wedding anniversary for his parents.
