We are finally back in Umbria, and thankfully summer has finally arrived. The temperatures are rising each and every day, but we finally have the pool opened so we can jump in to cool off whenever we need to. Our niece was visiting us last week and we managed to squeeze in a visit to Gubbio with lunch at Da Baffone, and a trip to Castelluccio to see the Fioratura, although we were a tad too early to see the fields in full color. After visiting Castelluccio, we stopped off in Norcia for lunch and to buy some local cheese and meats. My two grandsons are now visiting now for two weeks, so we’ll be very busy keeping them entertained!

The stunningly beautiful Piano Grande!
