Castiglione del Lago

There is a vineyard and farm associated with our hotel that showcases Tuscan food and wine. We were a little concerned by one local recipe.

It was still raining when John and Ken went to pick up the motorhomes.

Jacky and Kim offered to shop to save time. It’s a shame because John loves foreign supermarkets and Kim really can’t get excited by them!

For the first time, we found ourselves drinking tea in the supermarket carpark. We have truly become cheapskate campers!

We arrived, without incident or getting lost at Castiglione del Lago by early afternoon. Ken and Jacky weren’t quite so lucky.

A lorry, on the wrong side of the road, took out their wing mirror. Jacky had the fright of her life when it went bang! We are waiting for advice from JustGo to see if it needs repairing before we continue, in the meantime, we’re parked under the trees at Camping Listro.

The site is rather muddy but the sky cleared and we had a lovely view over Lago Trasimeno.

The medieval town of Castiglione del Lago was a 30 minute walk and well worth the effort, it was rather nice.

No trip to Italy is complete without a Pizzeria visit so we finished the evening in true Italian style, while talking to a couple from Holland about petrol engines and the exchange rate of Sterling. For the price of one weeks holiday in the UK they used to get 4 weeks in Italy. Nowadays they find it very cost effective to holiday in the UK having just returned from touring Scotland and the Lake District.
