After breakfast we walked across the Tronto River to see this small temple:
It is set is set into the tufa rock just outside of town.
And walking back, over the bridge, I shot this of a few of the towers that make Ascoli a stunning place.
We had a very full day! We had a touristy lunch in the Piazza del Popolo at Cafe Lorenzo, including the delicious local fried olives and fabulous people watching.
We had to move our car from a very convenient spot right near the hotel because there will bee a market there this morning. Driving and parking here are a bit of a hassle!


Temple of San Emidio — 4 Comments

  1. Beautiful photos, Jan! The rocks make such a dramatic setting for the temple.

  2. Jan, it sounds like you are having a wonderful time.
    I am enjoying your blog posts and photos. Two more weeks and I am heading to Italy 🙂

  3. Oh man, I adore those olives! I’m thoroughly enjoying cyber-tagging along with you.

  4. Hi Jan! So glad you enjoyed Ascoli and found the little temple of Sant’Emidio. Most people don’t know about it. The olives are so addictive! Sorry I missed you; we just returned from the US yesterday.
