... insignificant??) they have their own olive oil press (something that is usually owned by the local co-op) and ensure that the oil is pressed as fresh as possible on the day of picking, maintaining the most perfect oil possible as documented by processes around Biblical times.

We then set back to making the pasta, with our boss keeping an eye on us, and giving us tips we had the perfect nonna's recipe and managed to make a brilliant dough (I guess that's what you call it) for ...

... non-main roads and our buddy the GPS lady again tried to send us off the beaten track! Not this time love! I stuck to my intuition and after a few roads that we thought weren't really the right size for much more than our car, we finally made it to Villa D'Este.

What a place! Originally a monastry, it was gifted to Cardinal D'Este when he became the governor of the town of Tivoli, and at the time was a palace. However, in the next 22 years he worked to make ...

We were starving by then and were on the look out for something to eat. We passed a restaurant on ...

Well, we all managed to sleep pretty well considering. In fact, I would say it was my best night's sleep yet. I am very definitely not a cold temperature person; the cold makes me miserable. Once I get warm I’m happy! It was lovely not to wake up in the night cold.
