View the blessing of the animals in the piazza of Saint Claire. On this day is was the horses from the surrounding towns. After the blessing and the horses leave, there is the inevitable cleanup. Travel with us as we visit an unique Salumeria (sausage shop) and see how the experts carve up the Prosciutto. Then we end our adventures at a gelato shop (gelateria) with wall murals we wouldn't see in an American ice cream shop. The gelato was excellent as well as the murals.

A truly classical hill-top town with many medieval buildings and churches. Not found on the usual tourist trail, it is filled with Italian color. The main piazza, located high on the hill provides a great panoramic view of the town and surrounding hills. A cup of caffe' with a shot of Sambuca and we can spend a moment absorbing a bit of Italy. Visit the Church of Saint Antonio and the Convent, now a civic museum.

The "Fontana Cavallina", or translated to Fountain of Horses, is a delightful piazza of fountains and a great place for meeting people. The original fountain dating back to the 17th century, it was expanded in the mid 1800s to form a larger amphitheater in a neoclassical style. When ever in Genzano, this is a must visit place.

How did they make wine many years ago? Think you know? Well, let's take a tour of a city of ancient wineries dating back to the 1300s. The word Palmenti means an in-ground or below ground mill which could refer to rice, wheat or wine production. I was told that some of these were still in use ... but I doubt it. This is definitely off the usual tourist route.

Like dried peppers? Toasty fried peppers? Well, we go behind the scene at the Agriter Cooperative which grows and processes peppers in a variety of ways. There are acres of peppers growing. We watch the processing, slicing up, and drying of the peppers. We also see how they string up the peppers for drying in the traditional manner. This is way off the tourist route ... in fact, we had trouble finding it.

The Maratea beaches offer a splendid opportunity to work on your tan. Rent an Umbrella and chair and you are set for the day. Great views of the ocean and small islands. Oh look, behind you the hills are on fire. Scrub brush perhaps set on fire by a careless cigarette, are working their way across the hills. The hills, too steep for vehicles, they use the Canadair fire-fighting airplane. We can watch the ocean, pretty girls in bikinis or airplanes putting out fires. Pass me another beer.

The "Cristo Redentore" or Christ the Redeemer on Mount Blaise in Maratea is the second largest in the world and the only one in Europe. Standing 72 feet high and 62 feet in width it can be seen for miles on its mountain perch. We also visit the basilica of Saint Blaise (San Biagio) which dates to the 7th century. The mountain stands at just over 2000 feet,, and on this day, we had clouds below and above us. This is a must-see when in Maratea.
