This is where the hungry come to feed. For mine is a generation that circles the globe and searches for something we haven't tried before. So never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar, never fail to be polite and never outstay the welcome. Just keep your mind open and suck in the experience. And if it hurts, you know what? It's probably worth it.

This was my favorite town of the trip. I really liked how the town was very medieval and renaissance-like. the views of the countryside was outstanding. and the minimal amount of tourists here was also a major plus. it was just amazing and relaxing to experience such a town. it also happened that we were in town when they were having their annual pentecost celebration, specifically we were there for the festa della palombella. the town was full of locals as the paraded towards the duomo, so we joined in and got to see the 'wood pigeon' descend to the duomo followed by an explosion of fireworks. this is where i begin my truffle obsession.

the best foods: spaghetti al tartufo (pasta with black truffle), cinghiale (stewed wild boar)
