Camucia was the nearest town to our rented villa, Il Castagno, and the ideal place to stock up on groceries and, of course, vino. Nestled at the foot of the hill on which Cortona sits, the town is small with beautiful streetscapes.
Thursday is market day in Camucia and we spent a gorgeous, sunny morning meandering amid the stalls.
There was everything imaginable for sale from clothes, shoes, toys and linens
to flowers and fresh fruit and vegetables.
I was too busy salivating at the array of fresh produce to take photos of it. Roasted pork was very popular, served from vans on Tuscan bread with the most exquisite crackling.
We returned to the villa for a lazy afternoon, I even had my first siesta.
