Today was a walking day. We walked up past the Train Station to an old fort, Fortezza da Basso, which is closed to the public which is a shame as it has a great moat and little trap doors leading to the moat. You could almost imagine alligators in the moat, munching through the latest unwanted citizens! Then we headed through a couple of parks and along some very big noisy roads until we found some more gates in the city walls (huge arches usually heavily decorated). ...

Before he took away the car, he showed us where the hotel was and how to get there. It was, OF COURSE, a stones throw from where we had parked the FIRST and SECOND time.

... first few flights we were already winded due to the incline.. but with a lil italian espresso and some adrenaline it actually helped wake us up. Every time you thought you had made it to the top there was an even more narrow staircase to climb... not to mention people were coming up and down the same way! A claustrophobic's nightmare! It was worth every archaic stone step! Amazing 360 view of the entire inner and outer lying ...
