... tomorrow with the plan of cycling the old city walls.
THURSDAY: Breakfast wasn't till 8.30 so we had a quick cuppa and some bread and jam (minimal breakfast at this price), as we were keen to get out early. The B&B has quite a few bikes to choose from so we selected our weapons of choice and set off. Felt so good cycling along but I was being extra careful with the traffic.

... since I left Dover.
Pleasant enough place. Full of old buildings but so is most of the Italy I've been through. Got more shops than anywhere else. And bikes everywhere. Centre is traffic free, flat, quite spread out so half the tourists have hired bikes. Good fun as they try to weave past the other half who didn't hire bikes as it must be some time since a lot of them were last ...
