Arrivederci to Viterbo (for now)

I couldn't resist posting this photo of this cheese with the name and likeness of the Roman, Cicero on the label. I'd guess the trademark expired awhile back and anyone can use this name! We left Viterbo for the Marche region to revise some routes there and inspect some new hotel possibilities. Our final night in Italy was spent in San Benedetto del Tronto, right on the Adriatic Sea as we made our way back to Rome. Sunday morning, the lungomare (coastal road) was a sea of cyclists going up and back in huge packs. The bike shop owner I met back in Viterbo had lameted that cycling wasn't so big in Lazio these days, not like Le Marche "where they're crazy for it". He wasn't kidding! We're back in the US for now but perhaps we'll be returning to Viterbo sooner, rather than later?
