If you think of a typical dish of Tuscany it is perhaps the Pappa al Pomodoro to come immediately to mind at all. Known throughout Italy thanks to Vamba and its Gian Gale, this dish has been able to conquer even the most discerning palates in time to become a classic of Italian cuisine. But how should you prepare Pappa al Pomodoro?

The recipe is very simple and is made with ripe tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil, garlic, vegetable broth, stale bread and basil, salt and pepper to flavor everything.

Peel and chop the tomatoes in a saucepan and let brown two cloves of garlic with two tablespoons of oil. Add the chopped tomatoes, season with a little 'pepper and cook. Meanwhile dice the stale bread and put it in the broth to soften. Once very soft wring well the bread and put it in the pot with the tomato and a little 'stock. Season with salt and basil and simmer for about 20 minutes.

Among the most charming towns in Umbria, Citta della Pieve, it offers numerous routes and interest both from the historical, artistic and cultural point of view, both from the gastronomic point of view. In fact we can say that Citta della Pieve looks like a great place to visit is in the company of friends, whether in the family or in pairs with their partner.

The character is obviously more related to town Pietro Vannucci, better known as the famous painter Perugino, who lived at the turn of the fifteenth and sixteenth century.

The town is still home to some of his masterpieces such as the Adoration of the Magi in the Oratory of Santa Maria dei Bianchi, The Baptism of Christ of the Cathedral, The Descent from the Cross of the Diocesan Civic Museum of Santa Maria dei Servi.

Città della Pieve is then known for the production of saffron since the thirteenth century and in its restaurants

Perhaps one of the most popular villages of this area of Tuscany, known worldwide for its wine Nobile, to the charming Piazza Grande, for churches and unforgettable views.

Originally an Etruscan town bought its architecture in the Middle Ages when it was enclosed within the three surrounding walls. If you're ever in Tuscany a walk through the streets of this charming village is a must. The best idea is to leave the car near the Church of St. Agnes and walk along the streets uphill, until you reach the Piazza Grande and the Fortress.

To visit the Cathedral and the church of San Biagio (outside the walls) but also the palaces and civil architecture are noteworthy such as the home of the famous poet Angelo Poliziano, now in the street at No. 1, Noble Palace -Tarugi or Palace Bucelli on the base of which are still visible several inscriptions in Latin and Etruscan.
