Castel Rigone is a smallish town up even higher (and a bit south and east) than Cielo Chiara, the lovely house we spent out Italian pre-tirement living within, and once we found the town we stopped in often (it’s only a short 5 or 7 minute drive on the back roads from Cielo Chiara). Usually, we’d just have a drink at the café in the small town center, playing Quiddler or having a snack with the drink. But once in a while we’d walk around the town (there are only a few streets, and some are solely walkers), to check out the amazing views of Lake Trasimeno, or to look at the lovely old church on one end of town:
Yet another amazing, little, seldom-stopped-at Italian town that you might just want to spend a few hours in, relaxing and enjoying the Italian sunshine.
