We had a room on the 3rd floor that was huge. The view over the tile roofed town was fabulous. We had a great night sleep. The only problem we found, was there was no sign once we got to the small village to indicate where the castle was, so we went down the wrong road and ended up down an alley that was so narrow it scraped the side of the car.....now, we laugh, but it was very difficult to back out. Of course, the hotel is right at the entrance of the town, but we didn't see it????

It was raining today and really cold so we took in the local museum full of Roman antiquities found in recent local excavations, it was small but still astounding that it was over 2000 years ago and they were so civilised. We had a turn up and down the Corso and then went for lunch at the highly anticipated Da Gino, it is only open for lunch and didn't disappoint. We took a little more care than yesterday ...
... for Madonna, the singer, not the virgin! It was so cold so we had the old 13th C town to ourselves and a few curious locals. We wandered over the ruins of the old castle, took in wonderful views in time for our reservation for lunch. We weren't given a menu at Taverna Caldora, it was all fresh from the kitchen, we had baccala with a light pesto, fried lamb with marinated vegetables and potato, fresh goats curd and heaps of bread, this was followed by ...
For a little variety and to remind ourselves of why we left the cold for winter we caught the 3.5hr train trip through Tivoli to an old country town Sulmona, the birth place of Ovid the Roman Poet. Our B&B, il Marchese del Grillo, is newly rebuilt and with a generous hostess Marta who made us very welcome. Armed with maps and directions we walked around the 13th C town with narrow streets and charmingly old views all around. Snowmelt was dripping ...
... much to do for nightlife. Yet thats what made the trip wonderful because I often found myself on a massive beach with maybe only one or two more people on the entire thing with me! So considering the craziness and noise of my normal domicile in Rome, this was certainly an awesome experience.
Thanks for reading and enjoy the pictures. GOD BLESS!
... imposing, fortified hilltop-villages and every now and then plunges us back almost to the seashore. Loads of tunnels to zoom through... Hilli not so keen on these! We book into the Bologna Novotel ('you can trust the carpets in a Novotel') and plan on finding somewhere nice to eat in the old city later. Tomorrow morning is to be a day of Bolognese exploration before we head on past Verona ready for our Alpine crossing to Traunstein on ...
