Today I take you to from the lungolago of Bolsena to Grotte di Castro a small town of 3000 inhabitants on the north side, a bit more inland from the lago di Bolsena. Especially enjoy the beautiful surroundings when you go to Grotte di Castro. The view over the lake of Bolsena and especially the surprise when you arrive and drive Grotte di Castro out of the tuff plateau before you. Meraviglioso as the Italians would say so beautifully.
We thought we were real potato eaters in the Netherlands! As we are proud of Vincent van Gogh’s painting “the potato eaters” from 1885, the 3000 inhabitants of Grotte are proud of their Sagra della Patata (the potato festival) around Ferragosto (15 August)
The Tuscia Slowfood home kitchen “la Casa di Effe” from Fabiana Eramo .
La Casa di Effe is a nice concept of Fabiana and her partner Fabiano a home kitchen during your holiday.
The focus is on the traditional cuisine of Tuscia with an innovative and daring touch. I am a fan.
“Tuscia Slow” in 80 recipes is the cookbook written Fabiana Eramo. A culinary journey through the traditions of Tuscia and Slow Food.

We follow the Etruscan origins of Grotte di Castro and the Santa Maria del Suffragio Church.
Grotte di Castro is named after the cave in which the inhabitants hid during the Lombard invasions.
