The Ladies of Umbria’s Monteleone d’Orvieto

The clean and imaginative little medieval village of Monteleone d’Orvieto is well-kept by the lovely ladies of the village. All is swept clean and tidy, and the homes are creatively adorned with colorful flowers and ornate wooden doors. All is quiet and peaceful, making a very pleasant walk among the winding cobbled streets. Not a scrap of trash can be seen anywhere. The views from the hilltop walls are vast and majestic.

Sitting in the cool of the afternoon, these ladies seem to be very good friends. There is much to discuss and talk about, and I was charmed by their laughter. Although they don’t know English, we communicated well enough. Much care is put into their appearance and they are dressed very neatly. Scarves, necklaces and stylish shoes accessorize their lovely dresses.

I can only imagine their cooking skills. It must be heavenly. There was much to see the afternoon I spent walking through the village, but I found these lovely ladies to be the most charming view of all.
