... on top of the hill was very refreshing.

Checked in at San Francesco Monastery. Medieval but with modern amenities. My window looks out to a courtyard, I feel transported to the 11th century. Explored the scientific center. Didn't realise Richard Feynmann, my physics idol, used to lecture here. Dinner at S. Rococco cafe, two courses with a surprise desert. With neuroscientists from Cambridge.
