Rather than disappoint, grey skies present another perspective, favourable, in which to view the golden mosaics that adorn the facade of the 14th century Cathedral. Regrettably, a change of lighting, (and not for the better), along with some deterioration of colour in the frescoes in the St Brizio chapel is a disappointment this time.
Enrico recommended Restaurant Altarocca, offering organic products from their own farm – a selection of local cured meats and home made marinated salmon caught in local streams. Maccheroncelli with pepper and ewe’s cheese and seasoned pork cheek made for a wonderful pasta dish. The vino was from their own vineyard, a soft Orvieto white.
