After breakfast in a detached sunroom at the inn, we took a suggestion from Heidi to drive up the mountain to another village. I believe we were at around 350 meters and drove up to a town about 1000 meters elevation. It was a very winding drive up and around hairpin curves. Made one of my passengers a little carsick, hopefully not from my driving! It took an hour or two to drive up there. Can you tell this is where my note taking stopped? Hopefully Jennifer will provide the name of the town in the comments below.
Finally, a really pretty sunny day! The town had a little stream running through the middle.
We parked the car and went to wander around. There was a little flea market going on, but most of the shops seemed to be closed, maybe just for the middle of the day. We had a hard time finding a place to have a lunch. We peeked in a couple of places, but they seemed to be just selling gelato or snacks and no tables. We found an empty restaurant where the owner was engrossed in a car race on TV (Formula One?), but was happy enough to let us come in and order. I think we shared some grilled vegetables, caprese salad, something else?
