We saw the dome for this church for  two hours yesterday while we were climbing the hill.  We cannot believe that we are on top of it now in Todi.

We had a great morning in Todi.....hiking, taking the funicular, going in and out of stores and galleries and of course eating "the best gelato in Umbria". We were really surprised to find out that we could have put our bikes in the funicular the night before, but we are probably stronger because we walked our bikes up steps!! We could not believe how high we were until we started going down and we felt like we were on a downhill ski run. We heard about a Tile, brick and functional pottery museum in the town of Marsciano. The museum was in an historic building and it had a collection of some of the largest terra cotta containers for olive oil. I am standing by the olive oil containers.
