Last night's dinner is definitely one of the reasons why we have come to enjoy Italy so much - pizzas EUR4.50, 1/2 litre of wine EUR3.00, free bread and a wonderful atmosphere. All up, EUR30.00 for the family dinner (maybe you can work out that we needed more than 1/2 a litre!).

And today we visited Marradi which lies north east of us. Chestnut country. Again, a cloudless day and a beautiful area. The town begins its annual chestnut festival tomorrow, and it runs on the next 2 Sundays, so we're planning to visit again. In the meantime, we sampled some roasted chestnuts (delicious but in 29 degrees, a bit too warming!), some chestnut cake (hmmm, not so fantastic), chestnut deep-fried tortelli (recommended...especially by Mathew) and some other chestnut products which looked like they tasted...not that fabulous to be honest. But we had a great afternoon - taking the train then ambling through the town. Next weekend, the transport is in the form of a steam train so that will be fun. Anyway, here are the obligatory photos:
