A lovely stay ruined by inflexibility. We stayed here two nights, but we struggled with crappy wifi and extra charges. Wifi shouldn't usually be a problem, but we need it on a trip such as ours. A good location, but staff ruined our stay.

It stopped at little stations about every 10 mins. You get what you pay for. But again it left right on time. Another new experience. Before the train, we splurged on the hotel breakfast. We had been eating food we bought, in our room but today we knew we would be on the train for lunch. ...
This was a lazy day. Mid-morning we headed out to walk the the other side of the river. Most of the walk was through the Ducal Gardens and a surrounding residential neighbourhood. The Ducal Gardens are sadly neglected. The grass was unkempt, most of the statutes were missing body parts and the fish pond was quite scummy. The Ducal palace is now used as offices for the army. The Duke would not have been pleased. We visited yet another ...
... and a museum which sadly was only partially open due to lack of staff to supervise the galleries. A highlight was the Teatro Farnese, a totally wooden theatre which was virtually destroyed in the bombing in 1944. It has been largely restored to its original condition. An amazing structure. I also enjoyed the Ferrari puppet museum. The Ferrari family has been making puppets and presenting puppet shows since the mid ...
