Just to prove that I recognise that there are interesting places elsewhere in Italy, here’s a little taste of the town of Zagarolo in Lazio.
Zagarolo is roughly 30 minutes by train to the south-east of Rome. It perches, like a rough gem held aloft in finger tips, on a narrow rocky spine.
I had the pleasure of staying with Ivano and Terhi at their B&B, Il Colle degli Ulivi (Olive Tree Hill). They epitomise what is best about the Italians, warm, friendly, good food, good wine …
Here to tempt you, are a few photos from the area.
