    Rome to Naples

    November 5, 2018 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 14 °C

    Checked out after early breakfast and on our way to Naples we stopped at the Pope's summer place Castelgandolfo. Another rainy morning forced us into a cafe cutting our tour short... rain stopped so we tried again only to get 1/2 block and the skies opened again. Quick trip through a few shops and back on our van, continue the journey south. Lunch today is at Marco Carpeneti winery and vineyard. Through the clouds we took in their view. Then onto the tour. Roberta was very informative and explained the history of this family run winery.
    Next the tasting:
    Small plates (so they said) were lining the table: fresh bread with their own olive oil, vegetable soup, olives, cheese, bacon and prosciutto, baked pumpkin with rosemary and most important the wines. Wonderful! Only bought 1 bottle of their brut, 14 Euros. May not make it home.
    Back on the road heading for our hotel in Naples for the next couple of nights.
