Tuesday: San Benedetto del Tronto


After breakfast, we headed to the beach town of San Benedetto del Tronto, about 30 minutes west of Ascoli. On the way, we stopped along the road where a "shepherd boy" with a cane, was tending his sheep!!!. NOT being a country girl, I have never seen a flock of sheep up close! They were very cute and noisy!

It was market day in the centro where there were blocks and blocks of vendors.
The best part was a line-up of porchetta trucks! The rain began to fall, so we ducked into a caffe to wait out the shower, and after our coffee, we were able to walk around, and grab porchetta panini before the next downpour.

We had a nice nap appertivi at our favorite Bar Lori. Finally our "last night in Ascoli" dinner at Gallo d'Oro was fabulous!
