Montefalco… in the heart of Umbria

When I have the chance of going back to Italy and visit family and friends, every excuse that I get to drive around is good. This time, I found myself in a town in the heart of Umbria for a really enjoyable lunch.
Montefalco is a small medieval village located on a hill and surrounded by olive groves and vines in the province of Perugia. This old town is bordered by the city walls and it is as well the birthplace of Sagrantino which is an Italian DOCG red wine…

The main entrance is the Porta Sant’Agostino, whose characteristic tower stands out above the rest of the walls. In the heart of the village you will find the town square, with a beautiful town hall dating back to the 1200’s…

The restaurant we chose for lunch was right in the main square. I was wanting to eat local produce and our lunch was all about truffles! We enjoy them from the appetizer to the main course…

Everything was delicious, even the desserts with which we finished our meal…

After eating we took a scenic stroll through the alleys of this quaint village…

A really nice day, a great lunch, in a very exquisite location…
