Good. We were in Italy. Better. We were in Umbria. Best. We were going to Assisi. It was Friday. There was hardly a soul about. And, for January, the sun was amazing.
As evening fell we waited ages for the bus back down to the train station at Santa Maria degli Angeli. But we kept calm. It wasn’t hard to be patient.
Top Tip: For lunch in Assisi we went to Trattoria da Erminio. When we walked in I realised it was a restaurant I visited two or three times on my first stay in Umbria 20 plus years ago…. It hadn’t changed much. Marabella had the local sausages cooked over the open fireplace in the corner of the room. She loved them. It was a quiet lunch service but I liked seeing a regular client, the classic older Italian gentleman, and a savvy Italian couple enjoying the food too. Da provare…
