The Mare and Spello

Spello is a town about 5 kilometers from Foligno (biking distance in which I conquered) and is on top of a hill over-looking the countryside (very similar to Assisi but much smaller and quieter probably because you can't find it in many tour books). I wandered the city and ran into maybe 20 people (tourists and locals combined). The city is known for its small picturesque viewpoints. Local shop-owners sit in a near-by square talking to each other-only to get up and return if a shopper looks decently interested. I decided to read my book that day (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo).

This was the beach when we were in Genoa.
