So, we drove north and are now in Tuscany. We stopped at Orvieto, which is an Italian Hill Town. There are many hill towns in Tuscany and Umbria, particularly the former. They were built during the middle ages as defensive structures due to the constant small time warfare and raiding. So, this massive Roman Empire is reduced to sibling squabbling. But there are attractive sights left for us.
In Orvieto, the church is rated by some as the most beautiful ...
... sampling many olive 2015 Nuovo Di Olio from proud producers.
Lots of locale vino, bruschetta, Pomodoros, and other gorgeous produce was also seasonal and ripe.
We would have bought 1litre of each producers oil, if we could, they were just so good...... But we had to pick just one, as I was advised by the luggage "police" (aka Noel). So our favourite vineyard , Madrevita got the vote ...... Funny that, they too have a Labrador , a gorgeous ...

We waddled out of the restaurant with a huge " doggie- bag" ( don't know what that is in Italiano) .....enough for several more meals
Ciao until next time ...... Ros and Noel xxxxx
