Capricci di Merion, Umbria, (Tuscan border) Italy

This year when making arrangements for our annual pilgrimage to Tuscany (Cortona Area), we were discussing places to stay with our Italian friends and they recommended a place a bit off the beaten path in Tuoro sul Trasimemo.  Il Capricci di Merion. Please don’t get put off by the words agriturismo on the website. This is an entry level luxury resort with it’s own spa, outdoor pool and beautiful gardens.

On arrival, we were warmly greeted by the staff that could not do enough to accommodate my very fussy  wife. Being a slow week at the Inn, they allowed us to tour several rooms and choose the one of our liking.  They were all fully equipped with all the features one would expect at an upscale resort, including high thread count linens.  All the rooms had en suite bathrooms, some with showers others with tubs and showers.  I would recommend you view the rooms on their website and choose which is best suited for you or trust their recommendations.

We decided to have lunch our first day in Capricci di Merion’s picturesque restaurant. The food was all home made and authentic. I would highly recommend that you have at least one meal in house.

Having stayed at many fine Hotels, Inn’s and B&B’s worldwide, We can say that Capricci di Merion is world class and should not be missed on your next trip to Italy.

Roscioli, Rome, Italy

Just a couple of blocks from the Campo de Fiori in the heart of Rome lies this wonderful bakery. Forno Riscioli  features a world renowned pizza. It’s one of our favorite stops for a lunch while we are wondering about the picturesque alleyways around the Campo. The next time your in Rome don’t miss this pizza. We are sure your going to love it as much as we do. Roscioli also has a restaurant that I’ll discuss in another post.
