After our visit to Assisi, we drove a short distance to Spello, a hilltop town at the edge of Monte Subasio. The buildings of the town glowed with the warm rosy-beige tones of the local pietra rossa stone.
We walked all around the town in a big circle because we were only able to park for one hour. Some obnoxious Americans, two couples, were being very loud, tossing their Southern twangs in a free-for-all around us. We stepped up our pace to keep our distance from them.
At the edge of town, we enjoyed a view over the Umbrian plain.
We stopped for a gelato after our walk. I had Amarena (black cherry) and Mike had Fichi e Noci (figs and walnuts).
We returned to our Airbnb in Perugia and had wine on the patio. I took a long hot bath. Francesco came to replace some light bulbs that were out. We had snacks of cheese, prosciutto, and jarred Asparagi verdi (green asparagus).
Mike whipped up a dinner of tortellini with salsa fave e pecorino (sauce of fava beans and pecorino) and leftover sausage from lunch.
The following morning, we would leave Perugia and head to Orvieto by way to Spoleto.
