First room was smoky. Changed rooms which helped. Bike storage room was toxic. Big cracks in building and peeling paint in room. Far from center of city.

We order pizza & salad and Gary has a beer. Lunch was yum ! By the time we are done there are quite a few people in the restaurant. We continue walking around looking at all the shops but it is quite hot in the sun, so we try to aim for all the shady areas........so does everyone ...

We did go into Palazzo Della Ragione, a 2 storey loggia built in 1219, housing an enormous wooden horse, as well as hundreds of floor to ceiling 15th century frescoes. Of course, as usual the pictures just don't do things justice, but I ...
