Umbria

A few days vacation and here is what I am going to miss more about Italy. Food. I spent three days in Umbria, central Italy. I visited Città di Castello, Umbertide and Gubbio. I had a very good time with my girlfriend, expecially in Gubbio – astonishing Medieval city – and I had some remarkable food in some very nice restaurants. Here are my advices:

Osteria San Florido (Città di Castello) – Great food, small price. You can eat typical central Italy food, particularly mushrooms and truffle dishes. I had a “tagliata” (that is medium rare or rare slices of beef) with green pepper and olive oil. Amazing. Great desserts too.

Ristorante Amici Miei (Città di Castello) – Again, typical central Italy food, mushrooms and truffle dishes are great. You can’t miss their “salumi” (cold meat) made with boar, stag and other game as starter. Amazing cheese! One of the guy at the restaurant invented a dessert that looks like a muffin with chocolate (inside and outside) and black truffle: something you have to try!

    Italy is great, expecially if you experience it as a tourist. It’s quite more difficult to live in it. Anyway, thanks for passing by. Have a nice day!
