Fontanile

Brad’s foot was a little better today, and after a fabulous "Anniversary Breakfast", complete with prosecco, we had another lazy morning at home, and a nap. At around 3:00, we took a ride to the adorable town of Fontanile.

A photo of the beautiful domed church is the header for my blog. On our last visit, we stumbled across Fontanile on our way to buy Amaretti in the neighboring town.
I was in awe of the view from the road of this gorgeous cathedral in the distance. I wanted to see it close up.

We had coffee in the local bar/café/tabacchi with a group of local men. 106 live in Fontanile. I’d love to make it 108! We visited the beautiful church, and saw several trucks full of just-picked grapes on their way to local wineries.

Then we made a quick stop in Mombaruzzo, the “Cookie Town” to buy Amaretti for the Slow Travel GTG!
