... the baptistery, museum and then lined up (it was an hours wait) for the Panorama dal facciatone. This was amazing and we could overlook the city from above the rooftops. We then were faced with the challenge of finding our way back to the Grom - the gelato shop we saw on our tour, and the Italian Grocer we wanted to visit to try pannaforte.

Stopped at one called VacchioMeggio and got an excellent tour of the vineyard (they actually let you touch the baby grapes here). Got to taste and buy some wine for home.
