We have decided to descend to the east and head north through the foothill of the Sibillini mountains to the town of Amandola. On our way across the Piano Grande in sparkling sunshine, we are pursued for a couple of hundred metres, very fast, by a slavering, snarling Maremma. These are the big Italian dogs who live with flocks of sheep to guard them. They look like very solidly built golden retrievers, but twice as big. The climb to the Forca ...
... mushroom tagliatelle which does not compare with the previous nights dish, having a ragu instead of pieces of mushroom and without bacon. The wine is fantastic, a 2004 Montefalco Dionigi Sagrantino. Sagrantino is described as "the flagship" wine of Umbria, and is grown only around the town of Montefalco.

I'll have to do without the GPS for some days because we will be passing through more remote mountain towns and villages. We manage to escape Spoleto through a pedestrian underpass across ...
... be harder with more climbing, and laden bikes. After a break, we make a passeggiata effortless by taking the percorso pedonale (moving subterranean footpath) up to the Rocca, and strolling around it in the evening sun. Dinner in the hotel restaurant is the easy option but turns out to be brilliant, as it was on the first night. All the dishes are beautifully presented; the service is impeccable, and the large restaurant space ...
