Finding Collepino

Yesterday we decided to take a drive up to Collepino, a tiny town with a population of about 13, high above Spello on Mt. Subassio.  We had been here 20 years ago, but hadn't been back and had heard of a great restaurant there, so we thought we'd go for lunch.
Traversing the winding narrow road I kept saying, this is too far, I'm sure we missed it, but then turning a corner, we saw a town, and sure enough, we made it.

Our welcoming committee was a new litter of kittens; the grey and white ones were hiding, but the black babies were so cute and curious.

As we made our way through the town to find the restaurant, the views were delightful.  We got to the restaurant only to find it was closed.  October in Umbria means that many places are only open for dinner, and on certain days to take advantage of the dwindling tourist market.  So, we hopped back in the car and headed back to Spello, with these beautiful views to savor.  Ciao for now.
