Via del Duomo, OrvietoNovember 28, 2019 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 16 °C
One thing we love to do in Orvieto is to just stroll around the beautiful streets, and Via del Duomo is my favourite. With its shops filled with beautiful ceramics and lovely Christmas displays it is probably a good thing I don't live here, and it is too expensive to send all my shopping wants home. I also love the wooden statues in many of the shops as it shows a real sense of unity amongst the shop vendors. Orvieto is such a pretty town and has a lot to offer.
After our tower climb and another stroll up my favourite street we decided to stop for lunch at Bar Da Brozzi, a very authentic Italian cafe that did not seem to really cater to tourists. We love these kinds of places and love the fact that staff speak very little, if any, English. Between us we work it out and somehow always manage to get our orders across. It certainly adds to the whole experience. We enjoyed yet another delicious meal paired with a beautiful Orvieto wine, while admiring the cafe fit out. They have definitely found a good use for their wine corks, from the wooden trees decorated with them to the bar totally covered with them. Very ingenious.
This is a life we could get very use to.Read more
