A beautiful November day in Umbria

I spent a lovely day in Umbria Friday; specifically,  at my dear friend Letizia's home where she operates a wonderful cooking school/bed and breakfast in the mountains above Assisi - Alla Madonna del Piatto. It's one of the most beautiful, tranquil places that I know.

The region of Umbria is called "The Green Heart of Italy" and at Letizia's, it's easy to see why!

Letizia and our friend and innkeeper Giulia Savini from Urbino picked me up at the train station and we had a fantastic day eating Letizia's wonderful cooking, playing with her dog Google, and just enjoying each other's company.

Hi Sandra, sounds and looks like you had a lovely visit. Your photos are so beautiful and I really hope to make it to Umbria on my next Italy trip, thanks to your postings. I'm saving the trip for when my sis can join me. She was very excited about the thought of taking a cooking class there.

Thanks so much for sharing. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Thanks Kathy, and welcome home from Argentina! Hope your flight back went well and you're not too exhausted.

I'm sure that you and your sister would have a fantastic time in Umbria, and at Letizia's. Her home (and kitchen) are delightful.

So lovely! I love your photos and that dog is awesome. Google is a cute name. I like the pic of the pomegranates too. Cheers!
