there were no trains to Perugia for the day!
So with plans slightly altered, I ended up in Foligno around 9:30pm. Leonardo and Agnese, a couple I met on couchsurfing.org to stay with greeted me warmly. After settling in, we came up with a plan of action for the weekend... head to North Umbria on Saturday and hit the South on Sunday.
Our first stop was Spello, a beautiful medieval town neighboring Foligno. We mostly wandered the streets and the picturesque alleys that are characteristic of the towns in Umbria, however we also stopped at a few historical sites like Venus' Gates. The highlight was the gorgeous panoramic view of the countryside. Unfortunately somewhere between the panoramic view and Venus' Gates I lost my scarf, c'est la vie (such is life), hopefully it has a better life in Italy. (Venus' Gates top left)

After being on our feet all day, we relaxed Italian style with a long late night dinner and good company. To be continued....
