We wake to a heavy mist in Todi. As we have our usual magnificient cappucino to start the day, we hear car after car coming into the our car-park. There are markets this morning in the piazza just up from the church, so we assume the best bargains are found early.
Speaking of coffee, the last of our 3kg of Amore coffee we brought with us from Australia was finished yesterday, so we are now into the local Lavazza (note for 2019 4kgs).
So we walk off into the mist, looking for a bargain. First thing we find, everyone is actually at mass in the church (it’s Saturday), there are only a few people wandering the market so we wander as well. Apart from the usual cheese and cured meats there are stalls displaying whole roasted wild boar. So we order a couple of panini with wild boar meat.
Soon enough we arrive in Spoleto. There is only one free car-park and we luckily get a parking spot big enough for the Hymer. The car-park is your usual Italian chaos. At this stage we don’t care as we have a relatively safe spot. It’s a long walk or a bus ride to the old own from here, but I unload the scooter and we are on our way to the tourist office in piazza della Liberta.
Behind the Duomo we take the series of escalators (5) to the Rocco gardens. The Rocco or Fortress at the top, is now a museum. But we don’t feel the need to visit and save our €15 for something else. So we walk the Rocco gardens taking in the vista.
