Wendy deserves all the credit for taking us to Orvieto. Despite us taking longer than expected around every place we went, Wendy insisted that we must see the beautiful cathedral in Orvieto. The cathedral is absolutely amazing. Its large scale, highly ornamented facade and stained glass makes for a "must see" place. I was really sad I only had my phone to photograph this place.
Our stay in Orvieto was accompanied by two wonderful surprises. The first was the lovely Agritourismo Cioccoleta. This farm house is a lovely place to stay and the host is super nice. The breakfast was also amazing and made to order!
Our experience around Orvieto ended with a cooking class in Sagra in Casa. Our teacher Simona was super nice, warm, and with a great sense of humor. We had a fun group of people, made amazing appetizers, parmigiana and panna cotta. We learned many interesting italian cooking tips and drank several glasses of local wine that Simona kindly offer. Her farm is very cute. Definitely, recommended! Unfortunately, I didn't take many pictures because I was to busy giggling with the local wine and deep-frying the eggplants! I'll soon get some pics from dave or Wendy and hopefully the recipes too.
