Thursday 7th of April, our last full day in Italy, so we had to make the most of it. We started with cappuccino and croissants in a local bar.
Than we headed to Assisi, to see the basilica of St Francis. We were overwhelmed by the amount of tourists and nicely surprised to see “our” statue from St Francis again. The interior of the basilica is amazing, one was not allowed to take pictures, so you will just have to go see for yourselves ;-)
On wondering through Assisi, you could find me drooling in front of these shop windows.
I did get me some nice nougat and meringue, some of it even made it back to Belgium.
This on top of the “dolci” we would have after lunch and dinner. Is it a holiday or is it a holiday ;-)
This nice mural on a ceiling in an alley somewhere in Assisi reminded me of Jeroen Bosch‘s work, I like the thin lines and that there is so much white in it.
More nice paintings, we saw these in several galleries, paintings with happy monks.by Luigi Silvis
After lunch we drive to Gubbio, another Medieval town. We were recommended by the landlord of our apartment to go here, as it’s more authentic than Assisi (were in later century buildings were restored in a mediaeval style). We walked around for a while, just site seeing when we saw a sign for a funivia, a cable way. It was a bit more wobble and just a basket, so I did not think it very fun, but it was worth the views.
Temperatures rose to 27°C that day, so we were happy to find a nice pace with ice cream.
A little shop full of handmade notebooks with leather covers, in all sizes, too much choice.
We left Gubbio behind and continued to make most of our day by driving to lake Trasimeno, the sun had just set as we arrived at the shore.
Some nice seafood for a change, although the pasta with fresh forest asparagus, we had previous days, is a real treat too.
Tomorrow our last day in Spello, with a little extra, stay tuned!
