    ... made the work easy and the view was just as sweet! The rolling hills with lines of cypress trees look majestic and SO Italian! We strolled the steps and ramps to get back down the hill, thereby earning our lunch at an aptly named wine restaurant called “Senorvino” or “Mr. Wine.” Lunch was a nice affair, with a view over the river and cheeses, meats, bread, fruits, and wine to enjoy.

We quickly ducked over to the mcdonalds, thinking I’ll just get a soft serve to ease my cravings, but the lines were huge! So we raced back to the spot – as we didn’t want to miss the bus. We had time – so I went back to a gelato bar we had seen before thinking I’ll just get basic flavours. But I stood there ...
