Although not on our "to do" list , or of the faith ,we signed up for a visit , and found ourselves immersed in the Basilica of St John the Baptist. There were ...
... we found this amazing local Pizza place, it one that the locals use, so there was no English going on at all. But we got 2 medium Pizza's for euros 7, can't moan about that, and we couldn't even eat it all.
