Orvieto - a view from the Fortress

Michelangeli shop entrance
Today we went to magical Orvieto in Umbria. We were lucky to stumble on the first day of the chocolate festival so we indulged in truffles, 100% pure cocoa, and pink bunnies on a stick. Orvieto is famous for the Duomo, we could not go inside as it was closed for the day due to a big concert, the outside was impressive enough, the architecture is stunning.
The streets are full of beautiful ceramics and everything Pinocchio and more shoe shops (oops I bought another pair). One particular shop called Michelangeli captured my imagination, a beautiful store filled with wooden toys and puppets.
