The next two weeks were like a glorified country picture book come to life, although the downside was that we did end up doing quite a bit of driving. Umbria is definitely less touristy, more traditional in the true sense and quieter than Tuscany. Spent time in Spoleto, (where we stayed in an historic monastery of sorts!),Dunarobba (visited petrified forests) Terni, and Ferentillo where they have a very interesting underground cemetery or crypt underneath one of the old churches.
Our final stop in Umbria was Perugia where we stayed in a B & B with a lovely couple Lamberto and Franscesca. All the Foster males were very taken with sexy Francesca who oozed personality in her broken English - but what a stunner! The first B & B we tried in Perugia lasted for about 20 minutes when we found someone else's pyjamas under our pillow!
Ended our Umbrian stay with a pictureque drive around Lake Tramasino and then headed for Tuscany.
