Scilla to Agriturismo Trappeto Vecchio

Today we drove up the heel of Italy to a wonderful Agriturismo near the instep of Italy.

But first we decided to drive up to the top of the highest mountain above Scilla where we stayed last night. The brochure we picked up at the hotel made the drive and hike sound relatively easy and there was supposed to be a Christ the Redeemer statue at the top.

The road was very potholed. We stopped to eat the melon we bought a few days ago.

A bit farther up the road we stopped at the sign for Montalto. Duke and Jo Ann made it to the top of the mountain. We didn’t find the statue but there was a great view.

I think Agriturismo Trappeto Vecchio where we are staying is the nicest Agroturismo we have stayed at. The owner greeted us and offered us beer made by a friend of his. The setting is idyllic. We are surrounded by citrus and olive trees.

We had a wonderful dinner ending with fruit from his trees.
