We took the train to Spello. I saw a dog that looked like my Jack Russell Terrier Shakes and his name was Spello.
Spello was a neat little town. We walked all the way up another hilly village.
We ended up at the winery for our wine tasting.

The winery is called Enoteca Properzio. Irene Angelini and her father own this family business, The wine tasting was conducted by Irene. We tried a white and a few reds. My favorite was the Alter Ego Merlot/San Giovesse blend. We also tried 2 different olive oils. I bought a huge bottle that is supposed to last 2 years for around $35 Euro.

We also stopped at Assisi along the way and got to see the tomb of St. Francis. I bought a couple of things for the parents in the gift shop. The Church was amazing and you could see some earthquake damage. We went downstairs to the tomb where you could not take photo and had to be very quiet. It was small with pews on both sides. Many candles were lit. I looked over and saw a nun on her iphone which was surreal.

We came back to the hotel and a few of us went to go eat a few finger foods and tried a spritzer drink. I was not a big fan and found the drink dull, but some people enjoyed it. We then decided we were hungrier then normal and found a wood burning pizza place. The pizza was great, but I was still a bit under the weather.
