Vico Pancellorum, all the way to the top

We had lunch again at the wonderful Buca di Baldabo in Vico Pancellorum. It was a beautiful day and after lunch we ventured into new territory when we headed uphill from the restaurant.

The name Vico Pancellorum may have come from ‘panis celorum’ – heavenly bread, but more probably from a type of grass, ‘panicellum’ which grew in the area. The town is ancient and now has a population of only about 120 inhabitants.

Come for a walk to the top of the village.

We walked back to the car through beautiful chestnut trees.

The birds were singing, wildlfowers line the road and the air is heavenly. What more could you wish for?

  1. Vico is a wonderful village and your great photos, Debra, show it to perfection. I think that one of the “problems” that we have in Bag I is to choose where to go… We have so many choices!!! I think that the cat is gorgeous….

  2. Oh my dear Debra, as if I walked with you too… what a beautiful photographs… and amazing view… It is dazzling beauty… Fascinated me… I loved this village and and and yes, my best one is the CAT…. how nicely looking with her paws… you captured so nice photographs, Thank you dear Debra, have a nice day, love, nia

  3. Next time we will hire a smaller car so that we feel more comfortable visiting some of the more out of the way villages! We were fortunate that our vacation home allowed lots of walking in the neighbourhood though. It was great to meet up with you. Thanks for taking the time and do hope your new house is nearly done!

  4. Such gorgeous photos, I love them all and feel like I was there, noticing all these things too. Thanks for the trip nia!

  5. I am fortunate to have a family home in Vico and once I retire I would like to be like you and spend several months in Italy. I enjoy reading your blog and seeing the pictures of Vico made me wish I was there.
