An Agriturismo
Agritourism was begun to provides housing for tourists on a farm, but it has now expanded to other types of facilities. Although our agriturismo was out in the country, it looked more like a country club, with a large pool, three buildings, and a beautiful setting. The owners were very hospitable and we enjoyed the dinners they served in the large dining room. The first included a small serving of tripe, one pasta with ground boar, while the main course was pork and rabbit.

This was a beautiful spot out in the country, quite a different setting from our typical hotels of the tour right near the center of town.  The surrounding countryside was green and lush. We were even treated to a rainbow after an afternoon shower.

A patio here provided a great setting for  winetasting, with commentary by David, our tour guide.

On to Civita and  Orvieto.
