Arriving in Bolsena, we found a very convenient car park in Piazza Matteotti, a perfect starting point to explore the town. Through the medieval arch leading to Corso Cavour,
we were distracted from our mission upon discovering RetroGusto. The unassuming exterior belied the wonder within,
this place was much more than just a grocery store.
The range of local produce was boggling
but with a little help and a few samples to taste, we indulged in a delicious platter accompanied by a glass of exquisite vino rosso.
Armed with a selection of goodies for future consumption (the truffle salami could not be left behind), we thanked la bella signora and returned to our mission.
