Friday afternoon we finally got Lucio to drive us to Raiano 16 km away. To get there, we go over a mountain pass on a very narrow road on the rim of a canyon, then we drop to the canyon floor. Quite impressive. The town has 3000 people so it's the 'big city' I didn't bring the camera so I took some shots with Dana's camera. So beautiful. The area makes many specialty liquors. The best being 'Ratafia' the exilir di amore which tastes like cherries- sort of like that liquor we tasted in Sevilla-Gaudica??? The bakery there had fantastic cookies and gelato was only €1.8 for quattro gusti (4 flavors). Frutte di bosco (mixed berries)and pistaccio were very good. The town's fountain was under construction. The town was very pretty and I wish we had more time to explore but we had to get back for dinner.
