Una Passaggiata a- Nusco, Irpinia's Balcony
Una passaggiata a Nusco...a stroll...a camminata...a walk after lunch at La Locanda di Bu to help with the digestion. I recruited a guide who knows the area well...Chef Antonio (Tonino) Pisaniello and off we went. A stroll through the vicos, alleyways, angles that make Nusco in the Avellino Province one of the 400 most beautiful medieval centro storicos in Italy. Irpinia’s balcony with a beautiful view of the neighboring communities of Montella, Ariano Irpino, Taurasi…Cool, fresh air…we are almost 1000 meters above sea level. A wave, a smile, a laugh to those who pass by. A ‘sit down, have something cool to drink and homemade cookies’ with la Signora Tommasina in her magnificent garden in one of the side streets. Peace, quiet, tranquilità…if that is what you like…and I do.
