Off the autostrada in emilia romagna and conero

30 august---where did the summer go?
The pictures are of a little gem of an agriturismo you can only find by exiting the autostrada and taking it easy for a little while. they have suites and regular rooms and a nice menu. I even drank lambrusco, adrian!
The balsamic vinegar factory dates back centuries and our tour guide was the 17th generation from the family. You can find it in america with the name Giuseppe Giusti.
Then on to the conero promontory just south of Ancona where you see the famous beach of the 2 sisters which you can only get to by hiking a very step trail or by boat, then the coastline of Sirolo and finally sunset over that part of the Marche from the hotel terrace where you can enjoy a nice beer or prosecco and watch the colors change.
