Todi y Orvietto

Last weekend we spent a beautiful day in Northern Italy. We visited the medieval town of Todi and then traveled to an agricultural town in Orvietto where we partook of a thirteen course dinner. It was so nice to get out and into the country, before returning to the fast pace of Roma. I could almost imagine the place as it was hundreds of years ago...with the horse drawn carriages and the townspeople going to mass and getting their proscuitto and cheese for the week. It was great to be able to meet and get to know  my fellow classmates in a relaxed atmosphere. Here's to Todi and the beautiful city of Roma!
