La Visea - Nice wine shop with some of the local wines. Here's a wonderful post with all the information you'd need to find it and what the shop has to offer. All with Pictures!
Original house of the famous Antonio Pigafetta who sailed with Ferdinand Magellan.
Built in 1440. Can you imagine living in a house that old?
Door to the Pigafetta house.
And my preoccupation with cool doors continues.

It was a special kind usually only made during the Christmas holidays. This Lasagna had seven meats and included olives and chopped Almonds in the top crust.
Mama Mia—sooo delicious!
And what was so amazing is that I didn’t have any issues with the Gluten.

Although the day was cloudy and a bit dreary, we rode up to Monte Berico and had an awesome view of the town.

Decided to walk to the neighboring town, Montecello Conte Otto, and visit their church. Didn’t seem very far when we drove through. So I dropped the tomatoes off and headed out. Stopped along the way at the local cemetery. Very interesting. As a writer, I love reading the names on the headstones. Gives me ideas for naming my characters. Especially the ones in my stories set in Italy.

Some families have individual mausoleums.

See the large family mausoleum behind.

Oh and when I got to the church in Montecello C.O. it was locked. AND my camera’s memory was full AND the battery was dying. So I didn’t get any photos past the cemetery. Guess, I’ll just have to go back with a full charge on my phone and all my pics downloaded to my computer. Maybe in a couple of days I’ll have pictures of the beautiful church and bell tower.
