Montichiello and the Big 40

Just down the road from the Terre di Nano is one of the smallest walled towns I have ever been to.  It has a café, a small restaurant, and maybe a three shops. It's the kind of town where the locals study a play all winter, and perform it in the summer.  When the play isn’t going on, it is the quietest of towns, and it's magical.  We loved La Porta, the small restaurant, just inside the entrance to the town. They have the best "pici," a thick, hand-rolled pasta and a local specialty, and a fantastic proscuitto melone.  Then it's fun to walk around, see the church, and say "buon giorno" to the friendly women who are sitting at their windows just watching the day go by.
