Day two of our orientation trip consisted of going to a vineyard for some wine tasting at Vini Marino Wine farm and then heading to a buffalo farm, Caseificio Vannulo Mozzarella di Bufala , where we sampled some fresh mozzarella made with buffalo milk.

Around 4, we head back out onto the wet streets, to pick up Lesley and James for more delicious gelato. What? Two in one day!? It's ok - it's good for you. Then we explore the town some more, ...
