I’ve begun a walking regime since my knee is still recovering and I figure walking will help both it, and the rest of me! So, sometimes I combine the walk with an errand or two I need to run. Today, I needed to visit the post office. Always a treat 😏. The following is the trip in photos.
Leaving Piazza Mattiotti in front of our house.
Our pretty river walk.
I pass by the main intersection in front of the Collegiata built in the 1400s
Via Garibaldi, one of the main shopping streets.
Train Station. I turn left here.
Viale Unita d’Italia. There is a Moroccan store here where I can find spices and sometimes Cilantro.
Arrived at the Poste Italiane. Ugly building!!
First you pick which thing you want to do and get a number.
Your number and window come up on the board.
020 – that’s me! Finito! Successfully mailed my package.
On towards home. This is Via Carlo Marx. Umbertide was reliably communist until recently.
Pass by the theater. They have English language films on Mondays or Thursdays. Mamma Mia!
Come to the fork between Viale Unita d’Italia and Via Roma. I’m heading down Via Roma on the right to home.
Back to the Centro Storico!
Umbertide has everything we need. Some of it is not so pretty but it is functional unlike some of those pretty hill towns. They usually are all looks and no substance.
