Surrounded by a medieval wall, this medieval hill town was built on a 1st century Roman site. We stayed here for one night. To be honest, we went there especially to go to the restaurant Konoba Mondo (Thanks to Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations). 😛
Konoba Mondo was located halfway up the hill in the main street of town. We had a delightful dinner here. The minute we walked into the restaurant I knew this place will bring us great memories that we could talk about it over and over again. We even received 3 umbrellas as souvenir from the restaurant before we left!
White Truffled Polenta
White Truffle Carpaccio
Being in the truffle country, we had to take advantage of it. We pretty much ordered everything with white truffles. Back home it would cost a fortune to have the fresh white truffles so generously placed on each meal! 😀
White Truffled Gnocchi
Steak with White Truffle
Pnana Cotta with White Truffle
Loved everything with shaved truffles on top!
The Motovun Film Festival
If you are a cinema lover, you probably know about the international film festival here. The Motovun Film Festival is held in Motovun in late July or early August every year. It will be great to visit during summer.
The view on a foggy day....
We were supposed to be able to see the view on a nice day. Too bad! However we enjoyed the nice romantic walk around the walls and historic stone buildings.
