Castles, mountains and olives

Marco fills us in on cold press extra virgin olive oil in the Poggio San Lorenzo frantoio that’s been in his family for 400 years  

Day ten: Poggio Adam Lorenzo to Ponticelli — 22 km (13.7 miles)

Luke drove us in the van back to Poggio San Lorenzo and when we arrived we had a lecture from a Marco about his olive oil press. A big thanks to Francesco Lucioli for setting it up. Then we walked to Ponticelli via Poggio Moiano and had a great time in the gorgeous scenery.

Our group poses with Francesco and Marco. 

Hanging with Francesco. 

Then we walked….

….met new friends……

….stopped at ancient churches……

….with amazing exterior carvings……

….and beautiful interiors.
