A tow truck arrived, but the replacement vehicle had not. After many minutes of arguing with the rental company over the phone, Joey was told we'd have to take a cab to the nearest rental car location in Perugia, where we could pick up the new car. We decided that since we'd have to take a cab anyway, we'd explore the rest of Gubbio before making our way to Perugia.

We decided we'd have a snack and take a nap before driving to a different town, Montone, for dinner. The toaster twisted and turned up the mountain road to Montone, and we parked it outside the city walls. As we walked from one side of the dark maze of stone houses to the other, we realized Montone was closed. Although it was barely 8:30, with the exception of a bar in the town square, absolutely nothing - nothing - was open. It felt like we'd stumbled onto an empty movie set. So back to the toaster we went, and to Umbertide we drove.

It was after midnight when we finally left one of the best restaurants in which we'd eat the whole trip, but the near-perfect meal made up for a far-from-perfect day. Here's the rest of my pictures from our Tuesday adventure.
