The ancient paths connecting towns and villages of this region are mostly still maintained. We decided to take a walk on one of them to the tiny hill town of Collepino.


It took us a lot longer than an hour and a half. I guess we are slow walkers.

Off we go.


The trail follows a mostly well-preserved Roman aqueduct.

We enjoyed the wildflowers and butterflies along the way.


Stopping to enjoy a view of Spello.

We passed through olive orchards and farms

Our destination is in sight



When we arrived we were rewarded with fine views

And a cold drink at the only cafe/bar, whose proprietor is a big fan of punk rock. Why should we be surprised?

Other than the bartender and three ladies having coffee at the cafe, we didn’t see another living soul in the little village. A quiet place, for sure.

On the walk home Andreas wouldn’t pose for a picture in his newspaper and rubber band hat.


Ha! Gotcha!
