As we sauntered down towards the bus back to Spello, we still find ourselves amazed at the shops and the food they present. We went inside a tiny little 'deli' looking shop, decorated in early 'boar' (big in Umbria, boars are). The owner insisted we try a little 'aged boar' - a delicacy she says. Looks ...
