So, this morning we took off for Gubbio. Everything was totally nebbiosa–fogged in, but we assumed it would burn off and we were right. We had a beautiful, sometimes sunny, morning in Gubbio. We parked at the bottom of the town and slowly wound our way up to the Duomo at the top. We passed several amazing view spots and I took some great photos. this town is just made for a photographer! We walked and walked for over an hour. At the end, we found our way back to the car and decided to grab a quick lunch before we drove “home”. A salad and a panino in a bar were nothing special but just fine for the moment. We then drove to the Roman theater to see the ruins there and visited the Antiquarium there which I found fascinating. Here we are standing on construction from the first century!!!
Back in Perugia we got an afternoon storm so we rested. The Italy/Romania soccer game came on at 6 and we watched. I love watching the soccer here when you can hear the whole town cheering out the window as you watch!
Dinner tonight was at Trattoria Del Borgo on via Sposa, also from the Slow Food book. We started with a fabulous plate of mixed cured meats, made in house. We figured we are on our way out of pork-country so we had to go for it. I had pasta with porcini and K had the pappardelle with boar sauce–not the best but all good. We shared a mailino with sage and fennel that was delicious. Walked home–all uphill and of course in the light rain.
Tomorrow we are off to Liguria.
