Life at Castello di Montegiove

Vicolo Baciadonne, Cittá della Pieve

 

 

 

The meaning of the name is: “The street where you can kiss the ladies”  -two people cannot pass in the narrow street but have to wait until the street is empty.

Considered one of the narrowest streets in Italy it was probably made like this because of a dispute between two neighbours who did not want the walls of their houses to touch.

Cittá della Pieve is a charming medieval Umbrian hill top town with very nice restaurants, bars, a theatre, museums and all kind of shops. It is full of small alleys with nooks and corners where cars cannot pass and despite this people actually live there, it always reminds me a bit of Venice but without the water.

It is only 20 minutes drive from Montegiove and one of my favourite places nearby.
